Berwick War Memorial, High Street, June 1986.
You can see one of the lions to the left of the Memorial.
The lions were a yellowish colour and were thought to be oamaru. They were in Middle Park until the family home was sold in 1961. The lions were sold for 100 pounds by Ellen Trestail's then elderly daughter-in-law to what sounds like a smooth talking stranger, so they went out of the family and the family had no idea where they went. The statues were painted white when they were in Berwick.

This is an aerial of the Brentwood area taken January 9, 1978. You can see the Brentwood farm property at bottom left, sadly we can't see the lions, and the start of Bermasyde Drive. Click on image to enlarge.
Here's a later aerial dated May 4, 1994. Bermasyde Drive is almost around to Brentwood farm. There has been a lot of development in the 16 years, and it was about this time that the lions were re-located to High Street.
