KwaZulu Natal DestinationsSherwood, Durban

To the west of Durban, virtually around the corner from Westville, lies Sherwood, known as the little ‘garden suburb’. Sherwood has always had a green resonance particularly attributable to the number of nurseries and the wonderful gardens that grace the suburb.

An interesting history lies behind the origin of Sherwood. It is named after the Sherwood Foresters, a nickname attributed to the 45th Regiment of Foot of the British army, stationed here during the middle of the 19th century. The cutting through a hill, valiantly carried out with pick and shovel for which they were responsible, is still called ‘45th cutting’ today.

Interestingly Sherwood is only now beginning to feel the effects of the quest for property, having managed to escape the expansion that affected the areas to the north of Durban. Sherwood is perfectly positioned to serve as a feeder suburb into the centre of Durban and, whilst many of the homes in the area are old, buyers are following a very strong trend to transform these by renovating and upgrading.

Sherwood is close to the Pavilion shopping mall and only five minutes from the centre of Durban and her attractions.
