" Post, on what was originally the main road from Pietermaritzburg, was the route used by British soldiers to reach garrisons at Ladysmith during the 1879 Anglo-Zulu War, and took this name largely because of the influence and personality of George Curry (who became the local postmaster). Later the road became important to the transport riders and treasure-seekers as it led into the interior, the diamond fields of Kimberley and the gold fields of the Witwatersrand"

PostSubject: Curry's Post    Durban Escorted Volunteers heading for the front EmptySat Dec 07, 2013 7:00 pm

Hi All,
This place, Curry's Post, is a very small agricultural centre located a little to the south of Mooi River on the old Howick Road. It's grid loc is 29deg 18' 53.62" S / 30deg 05' 03.45"E.  
In the 1880's it was an important staging point and had an inn for travelers,  with stabling etc . More importantly it boasted a "watering hole" of note for thirsty travellers.
To get there pass through the centre of Howick, turn right when passing out of the town, on  to the Curry's Post road. This tarred road is signposted and is quite scenic. It is on the "Midlands Meander" and there are many tourist attractions along the road as well as much choice of acommodation for  travellers and visitors.
In the past it was the main road connecting Howick and Mooi River  and was thus the main access into Zululand

regards

barry
