    Tancred St. off East St.

    the Town is packed with Art Deco Buildings..restored and wonderfully presented with a very nice colour-sheme
    and some are right into your face ^..^
    when I first visited Ashburton in the late 80s, it was a little grey, even dull place. Farmers and the Freezing works very dominat and just a bit...provincial.
    I can assure you, that has changed completly
    if you are interested and want more information, the website below could be very helpfull

    Rhododendron

    some colour and natures serenity
    the Rhododendron and Magnolias in full blossom...I have to say....only an hour from Christchurch, in the vicinity of the Alps....Mother Nature is a little late here, in Christchurch, the Magnolias are already fading

    Nature

    in early Spring....the young Poplars just a little thin on foliage..but it has been a fine day, kids out and about on their school sports day and a shop had set up camping gear for the new season

    Art Deco Building

    Ashburton can feel very pleased in handling the renovation of its Art Deco Buildings. I like them very much, gives the Town a real good atmosphere, and from talking to the locals...they are proud of the 'old stuff', many, like this one, are snapped up by big Business..a fine adress indeed
