Ruins at Groenrivier

These ruins date back to approximately 1750. Urbanization in the 20th century decimated the rural areas worldwide and this process is still continuing.

This is my most visited place at Nieuwoudtville. It weaves a tale over the centuries. The photographs posted were taken over the years in different seasons and at different times of the day. These photographs tell it all and reminds of Gray`s beautiful poem “Elegy written in a country church yard”. These ruins are just outside town. When visiting us we will provide you with a map, and where possible accompany you to the ruins to tell you much more.
