    Dunedin skyscape, on a murky winter day. The large brick building left of centre, with the barrel shaped chimney top, is Speights brewery.

    I think they need to get the congregation to sit more on the right side.

    The reform all prefer the left side, or so I’ve been told. :cool:

    Completing all that's good about Reigate, I was about 2 minutes over on my parking ticket by time we got back to the wonderful Town Hall, so just a couple of snaps in passing:

    More Central Otago goldfield hotels - The Vulcan, at St Bathans

    Dunstan House, at Clyde

    IMG_0552.JPG

    The Mountaineer, Queenstown - this building has had the facade preserved. A relation of my wife's managed this hotel, in the early 20th century.

    And finally - not a hotel, but modern Central Otago architecture - a house in Clyde

    Neo Gothic Romanesque. Late Victorian or even later. A sort of Mish mash.

    I pass by Epsom College all the time and from the outside you can see it is a magnificent complex, but yesterday I drove in for first time, thanks to this thread. I could easily post a dozen shots, but here's a few:
