Turongo Anglican Church was originally built from local timber c.1879 at Moutoa. Being built upon a small hill with somewhat sandy foundation, Turongo fell into decay. This building is said to be the third on the same site. In the 1930s local elders gathered up the sound totara and re-erected this smaller building from the old timber. It was rededicated 5 March 1937 by the Bishop of Aotearoa, assisted by Canon W. G. Williams and Reverends P. H. Leonard, P. Temuera and H. Rangiihu of Hawke's Bay. The church was moved to Poutu Marae near Shannon in 1965."

Family trip to the Wreck of the Fusilier, Santoft.

Family trip to the Wreck of the Fusilier, Santoft.

"A film believed to have been taken by Rod Matheson.

Ingram and Wheatley's book ""New Zealand Shipwrecks"" relates the story of the ""Fusilier"", an iron barque of 404 tons net register. She went ashore, between Turakina and Rangitikei Rivers at midday on the 16th January 1884, but no lives were lost. Since 1884, the sand has moved westward and today the remains of the Fusilier are situated behind the first line of sand dunes, about 200 yards from the present high water mark. When this photograph was taken one of the masts was still standing, but by 1965 (when the writer first visited the wreck), this mast had collapsed and was partially buried by sand."
