Mystery shipwreck

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:26 pm on 29 January 2014

Back in the 1960's, a farmer unearthed a section of a ship in his paddock. It was mostly forgotten until recently when Buller District Council staff disovered what may have been part of the mast while putting in a pumping station near the West Coast Road. Local amatuer archeologist Steve Wilsonson was able to bring together a team of archaeologists and historians to have a closer look a few years ago. Now he's trying to convince the Buller district Council to allow a new archological dig to finally uncover the mystery.
