,A trip into the midlands should also include a visit to the old Lions River Trading Post which is based alongside the Lions River. As well as the antiquities on sale, it is a step back in time. Parts of the late 1800’s store and mill still exist, with the old mill turbine protruding through the shop floor.

For all the sins being lumped upon the colonials, they certainly brought century old skills with them, and made use of sustainable resources, in this case the strongly flowing Lions River. Eskom could take a leaf out of their book, especially with their recent decision to forsake renewable energy options and go Nuclear. (This whilst Germany is closing nuclear facilities?)
