Spoon hut March 2011
Spoon hut is situated on the TR bank of the middle reaches of the TL branch of the Spoon River in South Westland. Spoon River lies between the Hope River to the North & Gorge River to the south.
Spoon hut is a four bunker framed & floored with treated timber. It is clad with metal sheeting & lined with building paper. Unfortunately a badly leaking corrugated iron roof causes the inside to be very damp.
JH & I appear to have been the first visitors to Spoon hut for about two years. Entries in the hut book which is six years old don't even fill one page. There are four non DOC entries in the book over the six years & we may have been just the second party to walk in during this time period.
