I was driving around the Klein Karoo town of Oudtshoorn looking for something interesting to photograph when I came across this old cemetery. It was surrounded by businesses and a couple of houses with a stone wall and old steel gate in the front. Cemeteries, especially old historic ones, fascinate me, so this was a huge find.
The graves were made mostly of sandstone and the majority were so weathered and eroded that you couldn't see what was on them. I did find some with legible writing on them. This one belongs to Josephus Johannes Keyter who died on 8 October 1856 at the age of 38 years, 2 months and 25 days.
Close to the gate was this monument which looked like a spire. It seemed like it was erected in the latter part of the 1800's as well and was done so by a church for its ministers after they respective deaths.
