If you look back far enough, you’ll come across a rather intriguing plan which dates from 1859 for the two townships of Whau North and South (today’s Blockhouse Bay). What was behind all those names slapped across the plan of the landscape from the Manukau Harbour to the Whau Creek back in 1859? Where’d they come from? In this episode Lisa Truttman shares a Whau Heritage Story from Blockhouse Bay to the Whau Creek. Recorded live on 13 May, 2021 at Blockhouse Bay Library. The Whau Heritage Stories series supported by the Whau Local Board and Auckland Libraries. Sound record: SA_0137_003 Image credit: Townships Whau, north and south, Map, Archives NZ, R22822741
