Ladysmith Wagon Hill
Location: Off the N11 just south of the town of Ladysmith
During January 1900 supplies in Ladysmith became seriously short. The remaining cavalry horses were shot for food.
Between 20th and 27th February 1900 Buller fought his final and successful battle at Pieters, forcing the Tugela position. On 27th February 1900 the British pickets on Wagon Hill saw the Boer besiegers trek away across the veldt and Buller’s troops marched into Ladysmith. The siege was over.Back
