Mountfort Ink Drawing: Anglican Church of the Good Shepherd, Phillipstown, 1884
One mounted ink drawing by Benjamin Mountfort of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Phillipstown, Christchurch, 1884.
The Church of the Good Shepherd in Phillipstown was consecrated in 1885. Designed by Benjamin Mountfort it was his first brick church. Due to a lack of funds only the nave was constructed during his lifetime and it wasn't until 1987 that the north transept was rebuilt in brick. The design served as a prototype for Mountfort’s much larger Cathedral of St John the Evangelist in Napier, which was destroyed in the 1931 earthquake. The Church of the Good Shepherd was demolished following the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes.
