All Saints Church in Ladysmith which was built in 1899 and is in the shape of a cross. It is not only a wonderful piece of Architecture but has plaques naming the Regiments and men who fought in the Anglo-Boer war and lost their lives. Swartzkop Gun Run held during the month of February each year.

Visit to the Statue of the Kaalvoet Vroue and Voortrekkers Pass.
I mention this again as two of my guests visited this site and then travelled onto Dundee to the Museum there and found that stories on the plaque by Kerkenberg and the Kaalvoet vroue linked with the history in that area.
