A sandstone church in Harrismith


This history as told by the hosts of De Oude Huize Yard 

The foundation stone of the St Peters Anglican Church was laid on 19 February 1906 by HRH Arthur William Patrick Albert, the Duke of Connaught, & son of Queen Victoria, whom was in Harrismith at the time to inspect the garrison. 

The porch & belfry was added in 1923.
The original cornerstone was laid in 1874.
It is a beautiful building.

Please join me for a walk in the gardens and church.
