John Robert Godley Statue

4/5

Monument

What people are saying:

The sculpture is right in front of the cathedral, commemorating the Canterbury Plain in 1850 where the Gothic leader led a group of people who fought hard and fought hard. And Christchurch is located here. So it is known as the creator of Canterbury!
