How far back can your mind reach?

25th August 2007

The Sandstone Heritage Trust has recently received a very original ox wagon of the type used by the earliest pioneers who moved northwards from the Cape over 200-years ago.  While our heritage activities are very often perceived to be preoccupied by steam and by vintage and classic agricultural machinery we actually aspire to reach even further back.  The fact that we have trained Afrikaner oxen to work with a wagon like this supports our living heritage philosophy in a very significant way.
