Coal and Clay from Huntly - Roadside Stories


Main St, Huntly

A Manatū Taonga audio guide to Huntly and its mining industry. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide to Huntly in the image carousel above.

The coal seams around Huntly have been mined since the 1870s, and today provide about 40% of New Zealand's coal, feeding the massive Huntly power station and the Glenbrook steel mill. Local clay is the source of Huntly's distinctive bricks, as well as of iconic Crown Lynn pottery.
