Mount Stewart

Mount Stewart



The hamlet of Mount Stewart is located on a crossroads between Steytlerville (30km), Jansenville (32km), Wolwefontein (41km) and Klipplaat (17km).

Mount Stewart was established as a railway station on the line linking Klipplaat and Port Elizabeth. With the demise of the local railway services, Mount Stewart has slipped into almost complete obscurity. The only building of substance surviving in the hamlet is the Mount Nelson Anglican Church chapel dating back to 1904. The chapel’s foundation stone was laid by J.H Cawood. The chapel stands in glorious isolation on a rise above the hamlet and its simple lines and ageless simplicity in the midst of the open plain is a quintessential element of this part of the Karoo Heartland.
