For the later site of Fort Northampton take a look at page 19 of IK's "Zulu War Then and Now".

That's not quite correct. Northampton is further up the bank into Zululand. Presently its in a backyard of a couple of houses. there are/were a couple of embankments and the original well point. I will see if I can dig out the photos for you Steve.

john just think on the effort to chop through that stone for around two meter. No porta packs and jackhammers. One has to wonder why the hell they didn't just stroll down to the river? scratch scratch scratch scratch

If this is the cemetery located to East side of the D30 after you cross the bridge over the Buffolo from Rorke’s Drift then it does contain the remains of the soldiers of 2/24th who died of fever in the days following the famous action.  The graves are not marked but the names are commemorated on Melsop’s 24th Memorial at Rorke’s Drift.

I recall when I went to Fort Northampton, a local Zulu said we have not seen an Englishman here since 1880s! Not many visitors go to Fort Melvill on the other side of the Buffolo from Fort Northampton.

Two other good sites to visit are in the Eastern Cape - Fort Warwick (D Company 1/24th) and Quintana ( G Company 1/24th).
