      History of St Peter's Church
      Courtesy of Akaroa Civic Trust website - www.historicakaroa.co.nz  (worth a visit)

      The first Anglican services were held in the warehouse of the Nanto-Bordelaise Company and in 1851, Rev. W.J. Aylmer arrived from England to be the first resident incumbent in Akaroa.
      The following year Samuel Farr designed the first St. Peter's church, erected in Church Street. The Church Street church proved too small and has since been demolished.

      St. Peters is the second Anglican church and was built in 1863.
      John Watson, Akaroa's second magistrate, donated the more central site in Rue Balguerie.
      The building of St. Peter's was made possible by grants from the Canterbury Provincial government, the Diocese, the sale of the Church Street church and subscriptions from personal donors.
      The architect is unknown, but Jonathan Mane from the University of Canterbury thinks that the church nave is likely to have been designed by architectural vicar of Onehunga, Dr. A.G. Purchas. The distinctive entrance tower and spire bear a strong resemblance to St. Stephan's Tuahiwi, also designed by Purchas.
      The timber cost 160, the site was cleared for 15 and the payment to the builders, George Checkley, Joseph Bates and Robert Newton amounted to 242.
      Work commenced in 1863 and was completed in 1864.
      It is thought to be a Selwyn church after George Augustus Selwyn, the first Bishop of New Zealand.

      At a meeting of parishioners thirteen years later, Mr. Penlington referring to the need to enlarge the church, said that when he brought his wife and eleven children to worship, he liked to be near them to keep them in order, but was obliged to seat his wife in one place and his family in another.
      Plans for enlarging the church by moving the sanctuary eastward, and giving more space where the organ and choir now are, were drawn up by Messrs Kane and Drewett. Mr. Penlington's tender of 280 was accepted and the new transepts were formally opened on Wednesday April 25, 1877. (Gwenda Turner) (The HPT records disagree with this and state...In 1876, Benjamin Mountfort designed the transepts and chancel. ) These additions and the original 1863 portion were separately consecrated by Bishop Harper.

      There is a single grave in the churchyard and it has caused some controversy over the years.
      The inscription on it reads "Sacred to the memory of Rev. E.B. Nevill, curate of Wanganui, died January 31, 1875." His brother, the first Bishop of Dunedin decided that the curate should be buried here, and as there was no vicar in Akaroa at the time, the Bishop chose the place of burial and found a grave digger who worked through the night in the rain, the Bishop bringing him hot drinks. At about 4am the grave was ready, the coffin was brought and the Bishop read the burial service. That morning he left by stage coach for Pigeon Bay, Lyttelton and Christchurch. Two years later, the vestry considered removing the body, but it was decided the body should remain, but not set a precedent for further interment in the churchyard.

      Services are held at St. Peter's church each Sunday starting at 9:00am.
      More information on the interior fittings of the church are available on a pamphlet held in the foyer.

      Design Notes
      Early English Gothic Revival style. Paired lancet windows, entrance tower. St. Peter's is an elegant design with vertical timbering and high Gothic windows. It is sited in a slightly elevated position where the finely proportioned tower creates a focal point in that part of the township. The interior has a fine gallery at the West End.

      Taihape History


      The Taihape region was originally inhabited by local Maori tribes who settled the area well before the arrival of Europeans; descendants of these tribes still live in the area. The first record of a European to the region is William Colenso's visit in 1845. In 1884, the surveyor's party for the Main Trunk railway line cut a rough track through the district.

      The town was founded in 1894, when European settlers arrived from Canterbury in the South Island. The site of the town was a small natural clearing in dense native bush, which the first settlers set about clearing. Many of the original families have descendants still living in the area. The settlement was first called Hautapu after the local river, then Otaihape ("the place of Tai the Hunchback"), and finally Taihape.

      Before the establishment of the railway, the bulk of farming produce (wool) had to be transported east by horse and bullock cart to Napier, from where it was exported. Until the establishment of roads and railways in the early 1900s, Taihape, like other rural towns, remained largely an isolated pioneer settlement. It developed as a key railway and transport town, reaching its peak of population and activity during the heyday of the 1950s and 1960s. The town declined during the downturn of the 1980s and today it is largely a refreshment stop for travellers and a service point for the local farming community.

      In 2005 Taihape's primary and secondary schools amalgamated to form Taihape Area School due to the declining numbers of students in both schools.

      Taihape People
      As of a June 2016, Taihape is home to 1,670 people. Population peaked at around 3,500 in the late 1960s, but declined in parallel with many other rural towns after that time. The town has two main schools St Joseph's Catholic School established in 1916, and the Taihape Area School.

  • Notes 
    • A visit to Chester in May 2001 did not reveal a Potters Court in Castle Street. However numerous photos were taken in and around the area. It appears that there could be a couple of possible sites for Potters Court, but neither were currently named as such.

      An e-mail from Margaret Hayes 28/9/2003 states:
      This morning I spoke to my Aunt in Chester and got a little infromation on Potters court.
      Potter's court was located in a small gap between the original houses on Castle St. It is no longer there and was probably renovated around the 1920s or maybe even earlier.There were 4 tiny houses with one room upstairs and one room downstairs in each of the connected houses, There was no back yard and a small cobblestone area in the front where the single toilet that was shared by all 4 houses was located.
