You will find this proud  church which was designed by Folkert Wilko Hesse in 1904 in the village of McGregor in the Boland.

 The Anglican Cathedral Church of St Mary the Virgin stands just off Market Square next to the old Public Library in Port Elizabeth.     This is another one of th  53 Sophie Gray designs.  The church was gutted in a fire in 1895 through a demented pyromaniac, Mary Livingston Johnstone, who also set the Hill Presbyterian Church ablaze and attempted to do the same at St. Augustine’s. She was later sent to Robben Island. The fire resulted in the church being remodeled into the layout existing today.

Grahamstown Cathedral
The Anglican Cathedral of St Michaels and St George stands  in the heart of Grahamstown. Building work on the cathedral started way back in 1824 already and lasted for more than 100 years.

Discovered this Dutch Reformed Church of De Hoop on some of the back roads in the Klein Karoo near Oudtshoorn.

Chapel on the Hill, Hogsback
This view caught my eye as I entered into this small church of St Patrick’s on the Hill in Hogsback.   In the garden is a stone arch with a brass bell that stands as a memorial for the Rev Dr Bride Dixon, first woman priest in South Africa, and doctor on the mountain for many years.
