Summaryopen/close

This historic place was registered under the Historic Places Act 1993. The following text is from the original Proposal for Classification report considered by the NZHPT Board at the time of registration.

The Mead Settlement woolshed, built in 1875 with stands for eight shearers, is an example of a Victorian woolshed constructed in brick, an unusual type of building material for farm buildings of this province. Standing on part of the old Haldon Station run which was taken up by John and Samuel Bealey in 1852, the woolshed is the best preserved of a group of buildings erected to service a 6,000 acre sub-farm of the original Haldon Station. In 1902 the Government purchased the Rakaia block and subdivided it into 21 farms.
