St Mary's Cathedral

The Pro Cathedral of St Mary, New Plymouth, is the oldest stone church in New Zealand. The first part of the Church was begun in March 1845, and completed and opened for worship on St Michael's Day, September 29th 1846. The land on which it was built had been secured from the Plymouth Company of New Zealand by Bishop Selwyn in October 1842, during his epic journey around his Diocese on foot, ministering to new settlement communities.

After several weeks of not sketching, I have finally managed to get out again! Here is the result.

Have a look at the following website for old photos and information about St Mary's Cathedral:
