The “Methodist Cathedral” – Commemoration Church in Grahamstown

The neo-Gothic Commemoration Church in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa is a remarkable site of memory and devotion for Methodists.

The Campanile was erected to commemorate the landing of the 1820 Settlers and is situated at the entrance to the railway station and docks in Strand Street. The Memorial has a climb of 204 steps that takes one to the Observation Room, offering a magnificent view of the harbor and surroundings, more than 52m above the city. It contains the largest carillon of bells in the country in addition to its chiming clock.

Thus, in the spirit of development, I am throwing my writing into the wind to be judged, weighed and (hopefully) enjoyed.
