Barbados Garrison
The Garrison Historic Area From 1655 large fleets of British ships and soldiers were visiting and Barbados making it there base of operation. In the early years there were no barracks for them or provisions, the care and expense of the officers fell in the hands of Barbadians themselves. After repeated visits this became quite burdensome especially considering it was at a time when the island was quite impoverished. The legislature of Barbados was moved to petition the British government for a permanent garrison to be built on the island. It was not until 1780 that it was finally decided by the British Government to station a permanent garrison on the island. It was eventually decided that the Garrisons should be built near Charles Fort and St Anne’s Castle. 16 acres were purchased in 1789 and construction began by the early 19th century most of the buildings had been completed and had grown to cover 64 acres. The Garrison in Barbados is in fact the largest in the Caribbean. Many of the buildings were constructed of London brick brought out as ballast in ships which returned with sugar. Some 60 of the original buildings are still in existence today. The Savannah of itself was a very rocky area where many crabs lived. It had to be filled in and leveled for the troops to practice on. It was also the birthplace of cricket in Barbados and today serves as the islands racetrack. On November 30th 1966 Barbados was led into Independence by the then Premier Errol Walton Barrow, officially celebrating the achievement of nationhood as a sovereign and independent state within the Commonwealth

Some say the name “Foul Bay” was given to this beautiful beach because up to the mid-1950s fishermen used to sell their catch on Foul Bay Beach. The fish was de-scaled and gutted on the spot. The smell was foul, hence the name. Others say Foul Bay it is an adaptation of the original name Fowl Bay which itself originated from the large number of migrating birds that once nested in a swamp located in the area. Foul Bay was the location where the famous Harp Gun was off loaded from a ship and then transported to its location at Paragon. Train tracks were laid to aid in transporting the gun

Speightstown Pier
The town was at one point called Little Bristol because of it's trading links with Bristol England Larger ships always sailed into Speightstown because they could not get into Bridgetown until the deepwater harbor was constructed. They would load their cargo on to smaller ships that would then deliver to Bridgetown. Sprightstown is also the port that many slaves in the triangular slave trade first sailed into. Arlington House now serves as a museum but was once a make shift clinic for slaves who often arrived on the island ill due to the horrid conditions they endured on the Atlantic crossing Just North of Speightstown is Almond Hotel. This was once the Heywood’s sugar Plantation and was one of the locations used in the filming of the Tamarind Seed with Julie Andrews and Omar Sharif. Another was the old Paradise Hotel

Great overview of the island. Especially enjoyed the stop at North Point. Stops at the various beaches may have been a bit superfluous. Would have been nice to stop in Holetown or Speightstown perhaps.

Wonderful Barbados Island Tour

What an amazing tour of Barbados we received from Stephen and Glory Tours, it was so much more than we expected. After stopping at some beautiful beach sites and the College for a snack, we had a very nice lunch up at the northern point of the island. They went out of their way to make us comfortable and this is a small tour of 12 maximum. We saw windmills, sugar cane fields and much local life including monkeys crossing the road and a mongoose running by. To top it off, we went by the horse racing track and Stephen stopped so we could watch one of the races. We were so close we could almost touch the horses. So much attention and above and beyond what we expected.

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. It’s a great way to see different parts of the island. Lunch at Animal Flower cave was our favorite part. The stops at each location are fairly short. If you want to spend lots of time at each location, you will likely have to go back on your own.
