Coolstore

Patea, Taranaki NZ, Sept 2012: Revisited the abandoned Patea coolstore recently. At it’s height it stored and chilled cheeses from the area, and meat from the adjacent Patea Freezing works…

I was with my father and sister and it was wild weather- so we didn’t hang around too long…

Here is my previous post on this place…

Below is a short film I made on my first visit to the coolstores…
