As with many historic sights in Barbados, this sight is off the "beaten path" and not easy to find (if you're finding it on your own as we were - rather than with a tour or hired driver) but is well worth the trip if you enjoy historic sights. As a side note - the view (of some of the... More

Intact and worthy of photos, of course ... but stopped operating as a sugar mill in 1947. If visiting nearby St Nicholas Abbey &/or Cherry Hill (both highly recommended), do take time to stop here.

One of the last working sugar mills in the Caribbean. This was part of a guided travel tour, before moving on to Cherry Tree Hill. I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry at this monument. Though it was good to acknowledge the historical element, it was also sad to realise the immense suffering that had gone on before due... More

It was interesting to view this piece of history. There isn't much to see or do at the site other than to get some great shots of the mill and read the history of the place. This is a quick stop off point on the way to Cherry Hill lookout.

Very unique windmill, which you can see as part of an island tour. We only stopped for a few minutes but well worth it

Fantastic historical landmark of a working windmill. Although it doesn't work all the time, it is located on a dairy farm that allows the public to come in and look.

The mill used to be open to go inside and walk through. You could really feel the energy and sprits of days gone by when sugar plantations were the main economic driver. Now it's all locked up, but you can walk around the outside.

Stopped to see this windmill as we toured the island in our rental car. Real old windmill not a replica. We had 4 monkeys run by us here.

Coming down the hill from a wonderful view point this enchanting old sugar mill comes into view, well worth a photo. There is a shop supposedly but it wasn't open when we drove past.
