Fort Nottingham - Natal Midlands

Fort Nottingham offers a nature reserve and museum to visitors in the Midlands.

Fort Nottingham offers a nature reserve and museum to visitors in the Midlands. There are also a number of accommodation establishments near Fort Nottingham. Fort Nottingham is very quiet and there’s not much to do except visit the smallest town hall in South Africa – it’s more like a medium-sized garden shed – and spend an hour or so in the museum that’s now housed in the old fort.

Fort Nottingham derives its name from Nottingham shire's Regiment - the 45th 'Sherwood Foresters', who were stationed there in 1856. This fort was originally developed when a body of troops manned it to protect settlers in the foothills of the Drakensberg from Bushman or San cattle raids. Visitors can visit the Fort Nottingham Museum located 15km South West of Nottingham Road.

Open Wed-Sun, 10am - 4pm. Closed Mon - Tues Telephone: 033-266 6482

Fort Nottingham Nature Reserve

The Fort Nottingham Nature Reserve is a small reserve slightly west of the village of Nottingham Road, and well worth a visit. The reserve consists of evergreen forest, grassland and a wetland. It is an easy area in which to walk, and there is a trail that passes through the grassland, alongside and across the wetland, and up into the forest. To walk the whole area should not take more than about two hours. There is a picnic site (no toilets) near the wetland, and entrance is free. Visitors are invited to go birding, cycling and walking through the Reserve.

The Bell’s Fort Nottingham Highland and Traditional Games

The Bell’s Fort Nottingham Highland and Traditional Games to be held on the grounds of Fort Nottingham (8 km’s from the village) will encompass festival events, exhibitors, food stalls, highland dancing and athletic games typically found at a Scottish Gathering such as the Breamar Games will generate interest and enthusiasm in the Midlands (and beyond) communities of Scottish ancestry and the general public who enjoy the unique activities found at Highland Gatherings and in so doing create an event that will be held at the Fort annually.
