St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand, is a magnificent example of 20th century neo-gothic architecture and is built almost entirely of Oamaru stone.
Construction of St Paul’s Cathedral in Duendin began in 1913 with the laying of the foundation stone on 8 June 1915.
Huge foundations, large piers and a tremendous vaulted ceiling, the only one in stone in New Zealand, rose from the ground, forming the new Cathedral’s nave.
Later, limited finances were to curtail the completion of the cathedral as originally planned until many years later.
But the wonderful stonework and craftsmanship remains today in the now completed cathedral.
