We are busy preparing more old maps of Ashburton from other years.

Someone thought the Umber Mine in Ashburton was at West Street but I know that it was at the End of East Street next to the Cottage Hospital which I think may have been called Eastern Road at that point. I used to live at East End Terrace and I remember having to pass the entrance of the mine and getting the orange/brown umber on the bottom of my shoes.
