as of March 2012, this wheel has been cut through and partly removed from the site and is in storage being restored. The last time I looked, the bottom quarter of the wheel was still buried in detritus in the wheel pit. A trust has been formed to restore the wheel and its surroundings and this is certainly well overdue, however there may be some discussion still going on about what exactly can be done and in what fashion, because the wheel (and one must suppose its wheel pit and surroundings) are heritage items under the protection of the NZ Historic Places Trust.
