‪#‎history‬ ‪#‎Kaipara‬ ‪#‎NorthlandNZ‬ The iron hulled barque Anglo Norman ashore at Kaipara Heads 26 September 1914. The Anglo Norman was built at Port Glasgow in 1876 762 tons register. At the time of her wrecking she was owned by Aeties Anglo Norman of Porsgrund, Norway. She came ashore at North spit during a heavy swell. The crew of 12 disembarked safely and had walked to the lighthouse where they were given shelter for the night. By the next day the barque was 15 feet into the sand and was full of water. She still lies there to this day.
