Half an acre of history

From Country Life, 9:28 pm on 12 February 2010

Cosmo Kentish-Barnes meets farmer and compulsive collector Richard Spark, who over 35 years has filled the Northbrook Museum near Rangiora with memorabilia, materials and technology from yesteryear. The museum started with a milk bottle collection housed in an old milking shed, but has since grown into half an acre of attached buildings that are overflowing with local history.
