Wellington’s “Old Tannery” dates to 1871 and is one of the oldest factories in South Africa.

A project to restore and develop the unique industrial spaces of the Old Tannery is well underway.

Some buildings already house a variety of creative and light industrial businesses, others are being meticulously refurbished to provide a space where people can eat, drink, shop and work in safety and comfort.

All renovations are taking place according to the exacting guidelines of South Africa’s heritage regulations, so that the unique architecture and character of the Old Tannery may be restored and enjoyed for generations to come.
