Ferrymead Heritage Park

A couple of weeks ago, I spent two gloriously sunny days based at the picturesque Ferrymead Heritage Park in Christchurch. It's like stepping back in time into this colonial style village, with old fashioned shops, cottages and charming little buildings to explore up and down the main street. I would have loved to look around the big shed full of restored vehicles and farming equipment but had to make do peering in through the big windows ... and then along came a beautifully restored train to take us on a little tour of the village and surrounding area. How delightful!

I'll let the pictures doing the talking.
Check out the movie times
An old classroom. What's changed?
You can buy anything at the general store.
All aboard!
The sign says you can only pull the bell ONCE.
Time for a tune.
High tea and treats.
Not in my kitchen!
