Ashburton in Peril

The sub-menus in this section show where Ashburton people have been struggling to keep safe - either as individuals or as a community.There are pages on Fire and Flood, Health and Disease and Conflict, and for the townsfolk of previous generations there was also the very real fear of the supernatural. I have started with Crime and Punishment. One of the most notorious cases ever to come out of Ashburton must surely be that concerning the Ashburton Rabbit Pie - see the section below for details.
