Researcher comments/remarks
The empty section in this photograph is now, in a case of back to the future, once again the site of Lyttelton’s Anglican Church. The church now on the site was built in 1885 on the corner of Simeon Quay and Brittan Terrace in West Lyttelton and dedicated as St Saviour’s. In 1976 this church was gifted to Cathedral Grammar School and was moved in sections to the corner of Chester Street West and Park Terrace. Following the collapse of The Church of the Most Holy Trinity, and the need for a bigger chapel at the school, St Saviour’s was returned to Lyttelton.
