Caledon springs

At least since the time the Dutch occupied the Cape, the Caledon springs have been used for health reasons. The hotter water is and the more under pressure it is the more it is able to dissolve minerals and gases, hence the claim of hot aprings to possess medicinal properties.

History

Mar 1710

Ferdinandus Appel is granted freehold of 12 morgen of land, having indicated that he would build accommodation in Caledon near the warm springs for visitors, who would have to pay.

1 Mar 1709

Ferdinandus Appel is granted by a permit by the authorities to graze his cattle "aan 't warm water", beoming the first official person to occupy the grounds of the Caledon springs, albeit on loan.
