Event details

On this site overlooking Windmill Park and Mt Eden Road, a well-known landmark once stood proud. Even after it was ravaged by time, the remains of William Mason's windmill caught the imagination of photographers, poets, and visitors to the St Andrews Road ridge in the first half of last century.

Join local historian Lisa Truttman as she uncovers the history of this early windmill, which produced some of the city’s first flour "when the winds were blowing". Also, she shares stories of the later owners up to its demolition.
