Oxford Road Trig Beacon

This strikingly beautiful beacon replaces an 1850s stone cairn farm beacon and incorporates the 1928 round drum of the trig beacon, common throughout South Africa. The centre island of Oxford Road originated from a water divide chosen for a farm boundary, which also served as a fire break and horse and wagon track; later this line defined the roadway and the Gautrain tunnel.
