Campbell, Northern Cape

Campbell, Northern Cape

Campbell is a town situated on the edge of the Ghaap Plateau in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. It was originally known as "Grootfontein", but was renamed in honour of Reverend John Campbell who visited the Cape Colony in 1813. Barlett's Church, built in 1831, is one of the oldest churches north of the Orange River and both Reverends Robert Moffat and David Livingstone preached from its pulpit.
