All Saints Methven

Chapman St., Methven
Methven, Canterbury
This church the second on the site is in two sections. After the first church was destroyed in a nor'wester, the original section designed by Benjamin Mountfort (1879) was transported here in 1884 from Sherwood near Rakaia on a six week journey. The transporter was hauled by two traction engines.

In 1999 the extension forming the rear section was completed. This was designed by Miles Warren.

The lych gate is recent, being dedicated in 2005.
