Alice Ransby (5), of Kakanui, helps plant a native tree at Clark’s Mill at Maheno yesterday to mark 150 years since the opening of the water-powered mill in 1866.
More than 150 people, including 100 pupils from Maheno and Kakanui Schools, helped plant 150 native trees to mark the occasion.
Clark’s Mill closed in 1976, but its machinery remains intact. It was bought in 1977 by the NZ Historic Places Trust, now Heritage New Zealand.
The mill machinery is run on open days throughout the summer, though no flour is ground.
