Geocache Description:

A memorial to the defense of Grahamatown during the Boer War

Grahamstown is famous for its part in the Frontier or Xhosa wars, but not many people know that it was also under threat during the Boer war.  In a move that most of us probably battle to understand in this day and age, the Saint Andrews College Cadets manned a station to defend the town against the Boer Commandos.  The remains of the trench and wall that they used as a defensive position are still visible more than 100 years later.


Find a place to park near the Grahamstown Golf Club clubhouse. The walk is about 400m, but its flat and easy. Watch out for golfers while you walk though.
