Nagambie residents at the site of the former Chapel of the Lake, where they do not want a statue of Black Caviar to be erected.

Angry residents gathered at Nagambie yesterday vowing to fight the decision to put up a statue of super horse Black Caviar on the site of the former Chapel of the Lake.

The church, built in 1885, was destroyed in 2003 when a truck crashed through the middle of it.

Where the church stood, bricks from the original building have been formed into a cross and a small display explains the history of the site.

Avenel and Nagambie Uniting Church congregation chairwoman Ronda Richards said the location of the Black Caviar statue was a done deal when residents were first told about it last week.

The group has started a petition and is consulting heritage experts.
