“Rare Find”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

It's rare to find a ruin in the middle of a bustling town, a unique place to take amazing photo's. If you are a amature photographer with a love of the out of the ordinary this is definately the place.

“Beautiful slices of wood”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

Huge thick chunks or "slices" of wood - beautifully polished. Wish we could have brought one home with us.

“Old Timber Shed - Oldest Building”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

In 1786 the Dutch East India Company contracted Johann Jacob Jerling to build a Timber Shed for storage of the timber. Today the remains of the Old Timber Shed can be found in Meeding Street. The remains have been partially restored twice. It is the oldest building in Plettenberg Bay and was declared a National Monument in 1936. There isn't much left of the building but the area is clean and neat. Interesting place to visit and take photos of the walls that is left over.
