Your Place - Rangiwahia

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:28 pm on 13 June 2013

A sheep and cattle farm country, in the foothills of the Ruahine ranges. Some land here was leased from local Maori as early as 1870, but European settlement in this hidden valley did not start until 1886. Today the total population stands at around 40 people with another two or three-hundred in the surrounding district.
