St. Paul's Cathedral

St. Paul’s Cathedral – Dunedin, New Zealand

The Cathedral Church of St Paul has occupied its site in the heart of the Octagon, and hence Dunedin, since the first parish church of St Paul was built in 1862-1863. This first St Paul's was built of Caversham stone and could accommodate up to 500 people. Unfortunately, construction methods used were not very good. The stone weathered badly and the tall spire was removed after just a few years.
