Geocache Description:

Gowie Dam

Nestled between Selworthy and Wincanton roads is a green little valley, hidden away in a quiet neighbourhood. It is here that you will find Gowie dam, another reservoir presumably built to alleviate Grahamstown's water supply problems in the late 1800's. Unfortunately I cannot seem to find much information about this dam, nor establish after which Gowie it was named...

The area seems to be popular with dog walkers, but there is also evidence of throughfare, so keep alert at all times. The cache is located near an existing footpath, so please make sure nobody is around before hunting for the cache.

Warning: there is a deep donga that cuts across the valley - please watch your step. You will avoid the donga if you walk along the road until you are as close as possible to the cache, before heading into the valley.
