February 2012 from the Air

Blackhead Headland a volcanic outcrop has been mined for its rock for road construction since the 1930’s, once a rounded picturesque headland, its has now lost more than half its volume. A covenant placed upon it in 1991 protects the end of the headland and the rare rock formations of the Roman Baths and Docks.. similar in structure and value as the Giants Causeway in Ireland. here is a flyover of the headland in February 2012 along with footage from the land. Filmed by Nic Reeves of phoam.co.nz.
