oOoAnother of my favourite Sophy Gray churches. The plans for St Mark’s were based on Littlemore Church, near Oxford in England. Three stonemasons were used to build the church and it was completed in 13 months. The windows might be the oldest in South Africa as it dates back to before Van Riebeeck arrived in the Cape of Good Hope. It was recovered from a church in Germany during the French Revolution, brought to England and then found its way to South Africa.
oOoThe Dutch Reformed church in Oudtshoorn is an Otto Häger design and dates back to the high days of ostrich feather boom. It is a beautiful sandstone building.
