  • NZ - Historic Godley House to be demolished

    The historic Godley House is damaged beyond repair and will be demolished.

    The Christchurch City Council announced this morning that initial hopes of repairing the 1880 building following September earthquake damage were dashed by the severity of the February quake.

    Two independent reports from structural engineers had now recommended the Diamond Harbour icon be demolished.
    Council spokeswoman Kay Holder said the historic home had now "all but collapsed".

    ... Godley House in Diamond Harbour is registered as a Category II Historic Place by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
