Christchurch Anglican Cathedral

The damage to the cathedral, once the most recognisable building in the city, if not in New Zealand, is more serious than originally thought. An after shock brought down the rose window months after the original damage occurred. The authorities are deconsecrating the cathedral ahead of further controlled demolition which will allow further assessment of the remains and whether parts are capable of preservation.
