Fort Napier

Fort Napier stands on a hill to the west of Pietermaritzburg, at the top of Church Street and commands a fine view of the whole city.   It  dates back to 1843 when it was  used as the British military headquarters in Natal. Interesting artillery pieces are mounted in the grounds. The mess hall, complete with clock tower, was erected “temporarily” after being transported from India during the South African War in 1899. The military cemetery dates from 1840 and contains the grave of Lt. Col. Anthony Dunnford who died in the battle of lsandhlwana (1879).
