About Geelbecks River Blockhouse
The Geelbecks River Blockhouse is a very typical, easily reachable and well preserved example of the blockhouse fortifications erected by British forces during the Anglo Boer War between 1899-1902.
These were strongpoints in their defences of the colony borders and strategically important locations like railway bridges, as in this case.
