The old place... SH2, near Poukawa.

For Hawke's Bay locals, or indeed anyone who travels south from HB, this old house on the hill needs no introduction...

It's quite amazing that it's still standing, and in fairness doesn't seem to be in a much worse state than it was when I first visited the bay from the UK around 12 years ago.

Long may it stand!
