KwaZulu-Natal

Fort Nottingham is situated a 15 kilometres away from the town of Nottingham Road. It is open from Wednesday through to Sunday.

The fort is made up of a collection of small buildings one of which has been converted into a museum.

In 1856 a regiment of soldiers from Nottinghamshire, the 45th 'Sherwood Foresters', was stationed here and that is where the fort got its name.

The troops mission was to prevent raids on the settlers cattle.
