Peaceful and historic reflection on plantation days

Lovely tranquil location for a picnic and a chance to cast your mind back to what Antigua was like in the late 1600s.

An important surviving sugar mill in the center of Antiqua is clearly languishing for lack of care and attention. A terrible dirt road leads up to the buildings, and there are no informational signs let alone historic preservation people around to offer any guidance.

Dropped off family for a stingray swim and headed here solo, tailgated a tour and learned a lot. A person with a machete manned the work in the windmill, his job was to cut off any appendage that got caught in the works (there was no 'STOP' button. Very interesting site. The 'Manager's House' had gun slits built into the... More

Stopped here for lunch as part of a round the island tour. Interesting but not stunning. Restored mill alongside unrestored mill with ruins of old plantation buildings was worth a stop

Stopped here for lunch after going to Stingray City. Lovely spot to stop, our tour guide gave us the history of the site. Lovely spot for some photos.

So my Grandmthers name was Betty hence going here. There is nothing here at all. It was quite comical. Worth it for the very colloquial dwelling next door but don't be disappointed an example of a sign here was " this is where the officers house was until it burnt down" there was nothing there anymore!

I have been before on my first visit to Antigua with a tour. It's an interesting place and depending on how much you enjoy history you could spend up to an hour there. There are picnic tables, but no restaurant or cafe which is a shame. We were hungry and so didn,t stay as long as we would have liked.... More

We visited here on the way through to English Harbour. The site is not developed and its simple to see the layout of the buildings from the time that this site was one of the largest sugar plantations on the island. The mills are brilliant - you can go into one - its all been restored - but the museum... More

Very interesting place to visit and reflect on Antigua's past. The menfolk were particularly interested in the workings of the mill - and the fact that they were made in England.
