Karoo. – When walking the streets of Cradock, you’re sure to notice the huge Dutch Reformed Church and it’s impressive neo-classical design, which towers about the town. Completed in 1868, this is the second church to stand on this site, with its design its based on the St Martins-in-the Fields church in Trafalgar Square in London. A little of trivia, the first President of South Africa, Paul Kruger, was christened in this church in 1826 and his name appears in the register.
