Roadmap - Gladstone

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 13 August 2015

A virtual trip to a spot15 kms outside of the Wairarapa town of Carterton, where you'll find a small dot on the map called Gladstone, named after British Prime Minister William Gladstone.

The countryside in these parts is home to farms, vineyards and an excellent pub. Also a historic church, a workshop restoring museum-piece wooden trams, and if you're around in November -  a scarecrow festival.

Gladstone is quaint and rural, and everyone says its local community is fantastic.
