Whilst journeying along the N2 in the direction of the Cape Town, I took some time to visit 'Die Ou Tronk', what a wonderful welcome I received. Upon arrival the owner of Die Tronk greeted me with warmth and charm and invited me to have a short walking tour around the Jail. Many cells have been converted into little shops which support the local small businesses in Riversdale. The beautiful collection of family antiques and stories shared made my morning that much more special. The stories about the history of the jail and the only hanging were very interesting. I ended my morning in the sunny and charming courtyard having a slice of the famous carrot cake and coffee. I would really recommend time being spent exploring this historic little gem but advise that you plan to spend at least an hour here as their is actually more to see than you may be expecting.
