More Info →Black Bridge, Kahuterawa

The original Black Bridge was built by Poole and Klein in 1927, due to the tragic drowning of William F Brown, who tried to cross the river in flood after possum trapping. It is now owned by the Palmerston North City Council and the area is known as the Woodpecker Block.
