Christchurch Cathedral

Yesterday we had a quick look around Christchurch city centre, we haven’t had a chance to do so since the February 2011 earthquake changed it forever. The Cathedral spire fell down in that quake and debate still rages as to whether it should be rebuilt. I favour the option of preserving it as a ruin as a memorial – like the Coventry Cathedral. It is in a pretty depressing state at the moment though.
