A shining example of Dunedin’s heritage architecture has been freshly illuminated.
Moreover, the Dunedin Prison Charitable Trust revealed grand plans for the 1896 Dunedin Gaol, in Castle St, yesterday.
Dunedin Prison Charitable Trust trustee Norcombe Barker presided over a short ceremony about 5pm celebrating the trust’s more than $700,000 “stage 2” restoration work.
The stage 2 work included roof replacement, exterior refurbishment and seismic strengthening.
The trust also built two replica gate pillars at the front of the jail, a short length of iron fence on each side of the gate.
