Fifeshire Rock

Posted by

Fifeshire Rock in the Nelson Haven, has been the subject for artists and photographers since settlement began. It has two names, both dating from the early days, and both are still used.

When Arthur Wakefield's ship "Arrow" sailed into Nelson Haven on the 1st November, 1841, through the narrow channel between the Rock and Haulashore Island, the Rock was then called Arrow Rock. But when the immigrant ship "Fifeshire" endeavoured to leave port on the 27th February, 1842, she was wrecked on the rock, and the rock has been called by her her name ever since.
