A JOURNEY THROUGH HISTORY: THE HEMEL-EN-AARDE VALLEY

Angela Heslop will give an illustrated presentation on the topic above

The Hemel-en-Aarde Vallei or, in English, “The Valley of Heaven-and-Earth” Valley” is believed to take its name from the writings of one Brother Schmidt, a Moravian missionary in the 19th century. He wrote:

Rightly it has got its name because so high are the hills which closely embrace the valley all round, that they seem to touch the sky and you cannot see anything but heaven and earth.
