Moturoa Battlefield

Braemore Road
Waverley, Taranaki
Titokowaru started building a pa here. A one hundred metre long stockade and firing trench with three strongpoints. Colonel George Whitmore attacked the position in November 1868 with some 250 Armed Constabulary and 300 Whanganui Maori under Kepa. After an assault in which about a dozen men were killed or wounded Whitmore ordered a retreat - Titokowaru's men pursued them almost as far as the Wairoa Redoubt (At Waverley). Only one of Titkowaru's men was killed while the attackers casualties were put at 19 dead and 20 wounded.
