St Luke's in the City was among many historic buildings severely damaged in the February earthquake.

Demolition of the 1909 stone and brick Anglican church was in full swing today at its site, on the corner of Kilmore and Manchester streets.

The church was designed by Cyril Mountfort, son of Benjamin Mountfort, who also designed St John's in Hororata. The rural church was also significantly quake-damaged.

St Luke's took 13 months to build at a cost of 9800 pounds.
