I) Dr Upham's house

**Please be aware and respect that Dr. Upham's house is a private home** 

At 28 Winchester St, on your right at the corner with Canterbury Street,  you will find the home of Dr Charles Upham who served the Lyttelton community for over 50 years and was the uncle to the famous New Zealand war hero of the same name. 

Dr Upham was remembered fondly and was considered incredibly generous. He provided devoted attention to his patients, many of whom could not, or struggled to pay for his service. 

The humanitarian doctor was also known to treat and check the health of the men suffering from leprosy located on Quail Island.  

In his free time, Dr Upham had a passion for water-colour painting some of which can be found online and was known to go everywhere with a dog called Billy. The doctor is remembered and honoured in the township through the Upham Memorial Clock Tower found near the historic gaol which you will have viewed earlier.
