Hollyford settlements, Jamestown, any ruins?
On Wednesday I'm off to Martins Bay and back, along the Hollyford. Is there anything left of the Jamestown settlement after a century, or are all traces gone?
Nothing. Great book about the area is "[Out of the Wild: 7 years in the New Zealand Wilderness](https://www.amazon.com/Out-Wild-years-Zealand-Wilderness-ebook/dp/B079NMTWFL/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1546811639&sr=8-9&keywords=out+of+the+wild)" by Charlie Paterson.
Thanks Berend. I've also got the book "Pioneers of Martins Bay", an old 1947 book by a adult who grew up there as a child. She describes her amazement at seeing a horse for the first time on her first trip to civilization.
