The Christchurch Cathedral was built between 1864 and 1901. Unfortunately, it has been badly damaged in the recent earthquakes, and part of the front façade was demolished after the earthquakes. There is great debate at the moment as to what to do with the cathedral – demolish it or restore it, and the courts are involved. Personally, I think it would be great to see it restored, however, if it’s as badly damaged as the experts say it is, then to create a new ‘modern’ cathedral might be the way to go.
