After an interesting visit to the Observatory Museum we drove to Gunfire Hill to see Fort Selwyn. The hill got its name because the Royal Artillery used to fire a gun each morning at 9 o’ clock until 1870.
Fort Selwyn was built in 1836 to protect the town and its water supply. It was declared a National Monument in 1936. The fort is quite small but the view of the town is great. We could see the whole town and even identify some buildings like the cathedral. I was very impressed about how clean the fort was. (Compared to the dirty Fort Frederick in Port Elizabeth)
