An Historical Link

An Historical Link

Recently we were reminded of our historical link with the British Navy of Lord Nelson's day when a descendant of Admiral Lord Collingwood visited the district. This young man and his wife did not realise that there was a town of Collingwood when they came to a position in Wellington. Having seen the name on a map, they visited the area and were anxious to see a map of the planned town and to learn something of its history. They also were keen to see a map of Nelson City and be able to claim that they had driven along Collingwood Street! Their visit was a reminder of just how closely we are associated with our British history.
