Painting of Te Rangihaeata's pā at Pāuatahanui

This 1852 painting gives an artist’s impression of Te Rangihaeata’s pa on the site of what is now St Alban’s Church, Pāuatahanui. Following a series of British raids against this pā in 1846, Te Rangihaeata withdrew north to a ridgetop referred to as Battle Hill east of the Horokiri Stream. The abandoned pā at Pāuatahanui was later turned into a British military post.
