Railway retaining wall 2017

                                by Hamish Crimp

This andesite block retaining wall was constructed around 1875 to protect New Plymouth's first railway line as it descended into central New Plymouth. 

It is one of only a few surviving retaining walls of this type in New Plymouth, and is probably one of the oldest.
