  • The Cornish Pumphouse is a relic of the original gold mine in Waihi - NZ's richest mine. Built around 1904, from a design used in the tin mines of Cornwall, England, the structure housed steam engines and pumping machinery. The pumps were needed to cope with the ever-increasing quantities of water as the mine workings followed the gold-bearing quartz reefs to a final depth of 600m. The horizontal Cornish pump was the pride of the New Zealand mining industry. The pump had a stroke of 4m and continuously de-watered the mine workings at a rate of 7000L/minute via No.5 shaft, which was situated adjacent. No.5 shaft had a depth of 399m. The pump was used until 1913 when the Waihi Gold Mining Company completed the first hydro electric power station on the Waikato River at Horahora (now below the waters of Lake Karapiro). The power was brought 80km to the mine on wires supported by 469 steel towers. Electric centrifugal pumps deep in the mine were then used for de-watering. The pumphouse was kept in working order until 1929, as the miners did not trust electricity. By the early 1930s, the building was stripped of machinery and left derelict as the mine continued to operate. In 1987 the area was fenced for public safety.

  • 4 Seddon St., Waihi, Bay of Plenty In 1884 (so ‘An Encyclopaedia of New Zealand’ tells us), Waihi consisted of "a bare knoll with a nearby hotel, close to the Paeroa-Katikati road, then in its primitive unformed state and defined only by wheel-ruts." That first hotel in Waihi was Tanner's, which was situated on the site now occupied by the Commercial Hotel. The Rob Roy Hotel, another of the same vintage, was established in 1896. So Tanner’s (later the Commercial) began sometime prior that date... But hmmm, WAS it “later The Commercial”? I found it named as the Commercial Hotel in the Thames Advertiser of 17 March 1891 (when calling for tenders for an addition to the building). But PRIOR that date, the Thames Advertiser (23 Oct.1889) mentioned Waihi Hotel (late Colebrook’s)...so another name goes into the mix! 12 May 1890: W.Tanner of the Yorkshire Grey Hotel had his publican’s licence granted. 01 June 1894: W.Tanner of the Waihi Hotel Waihi had his publican’s licence renewed. 21 Sept.1894: Bay Of Plenty Times advertised the Waihi Hotel as having been taken over from Herbert Gordon, by William Tanner. Taken over? But Tanner called for tenders to his own Waihi Hotel 3½ years earlier...! And MORE confusion: Mr H.Gordon was reported to be leaving the Waihi Hotel in Nov.1892! 1896, 7 March: the Ohinemuri Gazette advertised the Waihi Hotel for sale...by W.Tanner of Waihi Hotel, Waihi. 1896, 10 June: The Bay Of Plenty Times reported the death of Mr W.Tanner of Tanner’s Hotel Waihi. 1898, 27 Aug.: in the Ohinemuri Gazette, tenders were being called “for additions to Tanner’s Hotel, Waihi” by Mrs.Annie Tanner of said premises. ========== Anyway...at some time in the early 1900s, the hotel became known as Meyer’s (perhaps Annie Tanner finally managed to sell it?). Meyer’s Hotel burnt down in 1938...and THIS current building was its replacement, built in the Art Deco style in 1939. *phew* Got there in the end...

  • Over-top the pit in front of Waihi's goods shed. This coach was built at Newmarket Workshops in 1913. I believe this coach was modified to carry wheelchairs, as evidenced by the big doors in the middle of the coach.
