Thanks to Natasha Laidlaw and the Horowhenua Chronicle for writing and publishing this article, and as a fantastic result we have already uncovered the missing house that Bernard Johns had designed in 1975!
The real bonus was that I was contacted tonight by another reader who had commissioned Bernard to design the entrance gate to their property, which incorporated their family crest. I hope to get up there soon to take photos – perhaps that’s an assignment for Ted Hughes.
If anyone else knows of any more Bernard Johns designs, please contact Darin on either:
