The Dunedin Gasworks Forge

The Dunedin Gasworks Forge

While I was at the Dunedin Gasworks Museum the forge was working which was surprisingly interesting. I really didn’t think much of it when I was told it was operating at reception, however it was fascinating to see. After several minutes I decided that it isn’t often you see something made from a lot of heat and physical labour these days.  Also, on a side note the gasworks are the oldest in the country being the first in New Zealand and also the last to cease production operating from 1863 – 1987.

  1. Great photo. Isn’t this is where the countdown rats came from? A funny comment in ODT today saying no rats caught in bait stations yesterday but why would they eat rat bait when they live in rat heaven with such a huge choice of food available?
