Angus Gordon - Clifton Station History

Angus Gordon (Clifton Station history - part two)
If you enjoyed Angus the first time round then you won't want to miss this one. Even if you you missed his first talk, this one is not to be missed. His topic is “In the Shadow of the Cape – the Gordon family history of Clifton”. Gordon will talk to us about his book and the history of the cape and in particular the clifton area. He will carry on from where he left off. You can also read his book. This is an easy-to-read, 216 page history of the original European family, the Gordons, who in 1859 bought the iconically beautiful 13,500 acre (5465 hectare) Cape Kidnappers block of land in Hawke’s Bay from the Crown, and called it Clifton.
