Description
This car park on the east side of the river near the Claudelands Road traffic bridge was named after a private school which used to be on the site. The school was run by a lady from the village Sonning-on-Thames in Berkshire, England. The building in the background is the State Advances Corporation (S.A.C.) building while the crane is being used in the construction of the Government Life building on Ward Street. Part of the Ngati Wairere Opoia Pa is said to be buried beneath this car park.
