We don’t have a lot of castles in New Zealand, so when Campbell Live heard about a castle being built on the hills overlooking Christchurch we were naturally curious.

What we found was amazing – not only New Zealand’s newest old building, but one of the most technically advanced eco-friendly constructions in the world.

The castle is totally off the grid. When finished, it will be selling electricity – not buying it.

Tonight, John Sellwood takes the first peak at Chapman Hall, the castle on the hill.
