  • Pity there is encroachment on the site by a noisy Restaurant which should not be there - would that the authorities do something about it.  more »
  • We were led to this place through a search for a geocache. The ruin of the old warehouse is located on a road just outside a parking lot, so you can park well. At the entrance, a sign explains the historical significance of this place. After that, in 1786, a commission looked for ways to store wheat and wood in order to supply the Dutsch East Indian Company in Cape Town on a regular basis. The warehouse should meet certain conditions according to location, size and equipment. The house was actually completed in 1788, but the roof had to be renovated shortly afterwards due to faulty processing. But even this roof was not crowned with success, but collapsed in 1803. You can enter the house through a window via an "access" and thus get an impression of the former size of this hut. A nice experience that you can complete within half an hour.
