Abstract
Pretoria was a fortified city during the First- (1880-1881) and Second Anglo Boer War (1899-1902). In total, about 65 fortifications were constructed in and around Pretoria. Only 24 of the original 65 stronghold’s locations are known.

An urban trail is proposed to illustrate the connections that existed between these fortifications. The distortion of heritage by the contemporary landscape of Pretoria are investigated by a overnight facility design at the Eastern Redoubt on Strubenkop, Lynnwood.

The route provides a practical solution to use these derelict structures in a contemporary way which will stimulate the protection and further investigation of Pretoria’s fortifications.

The overnight facility, together with the other similar facilities on the known fortifications, guides the present-day fort user through the streets of Pretoria to communicate the current and historic landscape.
