Huntly - The Ugliest Town in New Zealand

Huntly is a truly ugly place. On one side of the town they have a lovely river on the other side of which is a huge coal fired power station. On the other side is what looks like an ugly open cast coal mine. The town planners have succeeded in cutting the town off from any passing traffic so all you get when driving through is a lengthy view of an industrial area. Truly horrible!

Here is a five minute video of the trip through Huntly. Highlights include the lovely coal train parked up next to the traffic lights and the twin chimneys of the power station.
