Looking to the Future

The 'Father of New Plymouth', Frederic Alonso Carrington looks through a theodolite

towards Mt Taranaki in this bronze statue which was unveiled last June by his great

great grandson.

As the chief surveyor of the Plymouth Company, Frederic was sent from England in 1840

to choose the site of a settlement in New Zealand, and chose and planned the present site of New Plymouth.
