LARNACH TOMB
An unforgettable experience for Trust members to visit the restored tomb in Dunedin Northern Cemetery, Lovelock Avenue, SATURDAY 12 SEPTEMBER, meet at the Sexton's Cottage at 12 noon.

The mausoleum, designed by Robert Lawson, built by William Larnach after the death of his wife Eliza Jane Guise was the grandest, most elaborate funerary monument in the country. Sadly, by the turn of the 21st century the building was derelict, and none of the stone tracery stained glass windows survived. It took an enormous amount of skill, time and money to restore the badly damaged and missing stonework and more than 100 stained glass panels. Following Lawson’s drawings required extremely precise stonemasonry, glass cutting and metalwork, resulting in perfect reproductions.

Our guide Peter MacKenzie is the stained glass artist who researched, created and installed the beautiful stained glass windows. Hear about William Larnach’s aspirations and his family. The symbolism of the Mausoleum, like the castle, does represent an insight into the mind-set of the fearless William James Mudie Larnach.

Numbers inside the tomb are limited:  for bookings please contact Ann Barsby. [$5 per person]
- Meet at the Sextons Cottage where burials information, trails brochures, blank “Distinctly Dunedin” Trust cards ($3) and Peter's illustrated booklet about Larnach's tomb can be purchased ($5).  
Tea / coffee is available.
