The Future or not of Christchurch Cathedral

A year ago I posted here about the earthquake in Christchurch

It is now 11 years since we visited New Zealand. You can read my account of the trip at Land of the Long White Cloud.

Seeing the damaged cathedral on the internet was especially sad.

Today I had news via Michelle's Christchurch Daily Photo that work has begun to demolish the tower. See this video.

According to the website of Anglican Taonga Bishop Victoria is pressing ahead with plans for a new cathedral in Latimer Square.

Meanwhile the Wizard of Christchurch is leading a campaign against the destruction of the old cathedral, believing that it can be rebuilt.

More information is on the Heart of Christchurch facebook page.
