Situé sur l’un des points géodésiques de la région, cette « table d’orientation » apporte de très intéressants éléments sur l’histoire de l’installation des colons agriculteurs venus d’ Angleterre.

Fun outing for a walk or picnic with some nice views. Interesting to see the plaques with family names, especially if you are related to someone.

200 year old beacon established for land surveying. There are plaques with the settlers names, farm allocations and distance from the town. Makes for a nice walk from Bathurst town centre and is open air and free.

The site has been totally revamped and has now incorporated the resident chiefs of the 1820 era in a sensitive and meaningful way.

Thanks for your great review Verna, Those locals are normally quite harmless. You missed the great views and the recently upgraded plaques, which now also reflect the location of the chiefs at the time of the Frontier wars. Thank you for taking the time to write

Bucolic setting belies history
jan de 2019
Beautiful view out over the hills and valleys toward Port Alfred. It encompasses earlier settlements of the xhosa tribes who were driven from their lands by the early settlers in the 1820's.
Repairs have begun to restore commemorative plaques which have been damaged and stolen over years of vandalism. Congratulations to the local Non-Profit association 'Historic Bathurst' for their work, which includes recognition of the tribal chiefs and kings who were there at the time of the arrival of the settlers.

Thank you, Mike, for your comprehensive review and statement of the historic significance of the site, We have tried to secure a more inclusive memorial by including the locations of the Isxhosa Chiefs and Kings who were "on the other side of the tensions in this historic area. We look forward to your return visit, perhaps to our new project, the Bandstand in the Showgrounds

You are right, apart from the 187-year-old history embedded in the spot, the views on a good day are spectacular both towards Grahamstown and to Port Alfred and the coastline. It was probably, for this reason, that the spot was chosen for the despatch of settlers. Thank you for your review

A must if you enjoy history. The toposcope looks out over all the countryside and points to where the settlers took up residence in the Eastern Cape. A quiet place - rich in history.

We visited while renovations were underway - but the views are beautiful and the setting so charming with cows and cow herders quietly and slowly roaming the "top of the Bathurst World"
