The first inhabitants of the Berg River Valley go back as far as the Stone Age. This period stretches over thousands of years to the San and Khoi groups of the 18th & 19th century. Artefacts from these early ages have been found around the Bain’s Kloof Mountains and hills surrounding Wellington can be seen in the local museum. Originally known as Limiet Valley (border or frontier valley), the area became known as Val Du Charron or Wagenmakersvallei (Valley of the Wagon maker) towards the end of the 17th century when the French Huguenots settled here. After the eventual establishment of the town in 1840, the name was changed to Wellington in honour of the Duke of Wellington, renowned soldier and conqueror of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.
Lady Loch Steel Bridge in Wellington, Western Cape was originally a wooden bridge in 1853 Wellington to gain access across the Berg River between Cape Town and Paarl. It was named “Lady Loch” after the wife of the Governor of the Cape Colony and High Commissioner of South Africa, Sir Henry Loch.
