More Info →Opiki suspension bridge and old mill chimney, Rangitāne

Taken from the Opiki side of the river and looking towards Palmerston North. The chimney is of the “Tane” flax mill, owned by the Tane Hemp Co. Ltd, a four-stripper mill which operated 1916-1920. The Opiki suspension bridge, across the Manawatu River, was constructed 1917-1918 by the Tane Hemp Co. Ltd., and operated as a traffic toll bridge from the early 1920s until 1969. The toll-keeper's house is at far left. The suspension bridge was known for many years as the Opiki Toll Bridge. It is unused but can still be seen today (2007).
