Might it be a suggestion to split this article into two: one for the town of Lydenburg and one for the former Boer republic? Michel Doortmont (talk) 09:37, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
And one on the ancient terracota sculptures found there. There is a single one sentence mention of them in this article.
I always thought that the name "Long Tom", came from the enlongated canons used in the boer war. There is still one standing about halfway down the pass. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vdiest (talk • contribs) 11:55, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm a bit confused, if the township to the west of Lydenburg is called Mashishing, but the actual town of Lydenburg has been renamed to Mashishing as well, then are they two towns with the same name? I can understand if they were merged but they are quite a distance separated? Bezuidenhout (talk) 22:49, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
