Every now and then we come across these old abandoned buildings. They won't be around for much longer, yet each one has a story to tell. If you see one, take a photo and post them here.Steve has submitted this one, it is on SH5 Mamakus about 5kms west of Mamaku village roadThis is one I came accross recently a few kms out of Port Waikato. There was one shortly before Port Waikato, all covered in weeds must take a photo next time.Dave RossKeymasterJanuary 17, 2006 at 7:48 pmPost count: 2310
It looks like I am playing this game by myself. Oh well, I am having fun.
On my recent trip to the South Island I saw a lot of good ones. To my shame I must admit that I didn't stop for a photo. This proves that these houses can be quite elusive. The following two are from that trip, the top one is near Mangapehi and the bottom one is in Waimiha.
I know a few more around the Auckland area. However, on the next trip South I will stop more often.Dave MorrisParticipantJanuary 18, 2006 at 10:29 amPost count: 615

Saw this little beauty just outside Kaukapakapa on SH16. Had trouble getting out of the gravel on the side of the road but I think it was worth it.Tharon KNOETZEParticipantMarch 19, 2006 at 9:25 amPost count: 62
Pokaka Supply Store and owners house. You can just make out the lettering on the signage. Note the window height on the store - this was so the horse and cart could pull up along side the building and load/unload supplies.
