Hugh Northcote has lived in the Hurunui District all his life.  He farms the Whalesback Station up the Inland Road, which has been in his family since the 1870’s.  In this interview Hugh vividly describes the violent shaking experienced in that area, and the experience of being in shock.  He talks about the dramatic damage to his farm land and fences, and to his home, which was eventually red stickered.
