St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church – Darfield

On a geo-caching trip today I happened to pass by St Joseph’s Roman Catholic church in Darfield and couldn’t resist popping in for a quick look around and to take some photos.

I knew I didn’t have time to record all of the gravestones, but I did take a few teasers that I have already listed.

It’s a secluded spot behind the heather-blue church, and I can’t wait to go back to finish work there.

About HuntingKiwis

A recent B.A. (Hist) graduate of Massey University in New Zealand, I'm currently studying for my M.A. (Hist) at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. My focus is on social history, particularly the late-Victorian colonial social environment and those often-overlooked characters that lurked among settlers - the remittance men, swaggers, misfits, and wannabes.
