This was the site of the British naval-gun emplacements during the Anglo-Boer War. Carved on the eastern side of the hill is a large white horse (akin to a Wiltshire horse) that served as a landmark for British cavalry during the war.

There are good views from the top of the hill, which is also home to the Franklin Game Reserve . Walking is permitted, and you may see ostriches wandering about. Entry is from Union Ave.
