Note (2) Desc NOTE:- >>> http://www.doc.govt.nz/conservation/historic/by-region/cante rbury/mahaanui/adderley-head-signal-station/ Historic Adderley Head Signal Station A Pilot and Signal Station was established here in 1867 and began operating on 8 December of that year under the charge of Mr Novis. Adderley Head Signal Station, Godley Head, can be seen to the left of the station and the Southern Alps in the distance Duties included keeping a four-hour watch (later extended to six hours) day and night, for approaching ships, acknowledging requests for a pilot and relaying shipping movements to the Time Ball Station at Offices Point above Lyttelton Township. Messages were sent by code flags flown from the flagstaff during the day and by carbide Morse lamp at night. Communications with Lyttelton improved in 1877, with the introduction of a telegraph line and later a telephone system in 1880. This was the first submarine telephone service in New Zealand. Initially the signalmen, pilots and their families lived below in Little Port Cooper, moving across the bay in 1874. In 1885 the pilots were relocated to Lyttelton and only the signalmen and their families remained. The schoolhouse, built in 1883, is the only remaining building. The signal station was closed at 0001 hours on 2 July 1949. The last signalman on duty was Charlie Gaunson, who took up duties in the replacement signal station tower built on Gladstone Pier. The foundations of a second signal station built in 1937 remain. This building burnt down on 11 February 1967. How to get there Visitors can access the reserve by private boat to Little Port Cooper, Banks Peninsula. Walking access is available from Camp Bay, with permission from the landowner. This access is limited during high fire risk and lambing season. Note (3) It is presumed the property passed from his father, upon Alexander's death in 1886. {BEP}.
