The Under FiveHundy series explores rural New Zealand towns with fewer than 500 inhabitants.

Doyleston is 20 kilometres south of Lincoln in Canterbury's Selwyn District.

On the road between Leeston and Springston and surrounded by farmland, it's unlikely you'll stop by unless you need fuel or are a local.

Community committee chairman, garage owner and postman Jack Pearcy, says there is a lot more to the peaceful township than meets the eye.
