Description

In 1906 during the Bambatha Uprising, a column of police was sent to collect two women and children from the Marshall Hotel, and also the storekeeper's wife from Keates Drift. On their return during the evening of 4 April they were ambushed at this rock. Four policemen were killed, later resulting in a terrible revenge against the rebels at Pukunyoni, Isuze and Mome Gorge.
