Cromwell, an old gold
mining town in Central Otago, with the Carrick
Cromwell was situated on
high ground at the junction of the gorges of the Rivers Clutha and
'Was' situated because the Clutha was damned downstream at Clyde to
create Lake Dunstan in the gorges.
As a result the old centre of Cromwell is now under water and a new
town centre built at the opposite end of town.
