The Prestwich Memorial and Visitors’ Centre is located in De Waterkant in Cape Town, on the Fan Walk- Way that links the railway station to the Cape Town Stadium. In 2003, during the construction of new apartments near Prestwich Street, a large number of skeletons were uncovered. They were the remnants of unmarked graves of murdered slaves, as well as other people, by the hands of the Dutch in the 17th and 18th Centuries. The location was called Gallow Hills. The bones were exhumed and housed in the Prestwich Memorial Building on St Andrews Square. The Memorial and the Square is an Environmental Education Centre and an Archaeological Heritage site named Prestwich Memorial.
