Details

From a place where children fished playfully with broken pins, to the notoriety of being 'Ligar's Canal' - finally channelled, bricked and covered, underground and out of sight.

The story of Wai Horotiu and its disappearance from our landscape is part of the foundation of the city of Auckland.
