Peter Millin Bridge

written by Admin
1 · 17 · 20

Peter and Patsy settled in Clarens during 1990. Peter is well known for his articles about birds which got published in several magazines over the years whilst Patsy often published her own delightful commentary known as A Rambler’s Note Around Clarens.

When you hike along the Scilla Walk towards Van Reenen St you will come upon a new bridge, named after Peter Millin, an enthusiastic environmentalist who were amongst the villagers who  started to map our, by now well-known, hiking trails.

With the kind permission of the Millin Family we will be posting some of their articles over the following months. The first appearing here.

More of Peter’s and Patsy’s articles appear on Di Jones’s web page, https://clarensbutterflybeds.co.za/
