over 13 years in sophiatown, huddleston became a much-loved priest and respected anti-Apartheid activist, he fought tirelessly against the vicious Apartheid laws. the life and work of father huddleston (link) he was priest at christ the king anglican church and lived in sophiatown. his political involvement with the ANC was the cause for his recall to the uk. his ashes reside next to his former church.  sophiatown, was destroyed/leveld and new homes were built creating a white suburb called triomf (triumph)
