Standing proud.

Great to see it standing proudly and glad it survived the quakes. A masterpiece, a tribute to strong Cantabrians who lived and died, poignant too.

A monument to fallen heroes in front of a fallen city. How poignant. The monument still stands tall and proud like a silent sentinel watching over the ruins.

I like a memorial with a practical application and this is one of those! It's just re-opened after extensive post earthquake rescue and is looking better then ever. It will carry you straight to Re-Start from Cashel St if you have been visiting the Gardens and it will ask you to remember our War Dead in heroic and classical fashion.... More

We were amazed at the fish life, and in particular the size of the fish that we could clearly see in the river below the bridge. There... More

The Bridge is near one of the entrances of the Re:Start mall. It looked like it was ok to walk along to get to the arc.
