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. Honours (First Class) graduate of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, I'm currently studying for my M.A. (Hist). 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.
