    Flower Forest Garden

    Barbados Wildlife Reserve

    The Barbados Wildlife Reserve is located in the parish of Saint Peter, Barbados. It occupies four acres of mahogany forest near the top of Farley Hill, next to Grenade Hall Signal Station and Forest. It was established by Canadian primatologist Jean Baulu and his wife, Suzanne. They first founded the Barbados Primate Research Centre on the site in 1982, for the conservation and study of Green Monkeys, which were brought to Barbados in the 17th century and are now widespread on the island. It was expanded into a wildlife reserve in 1985, with funding from the Canadian International Development Agency. In addition to the Green Monkeys, which roam freely in and out of the fenced enclosure, the Wildlife Reserve also keeps a variety of other animals, many of which roam the Reserve freely without separation from visitors.

    Earthworks Pottery

    Earthworks is a pottery production company in Barbados. Established in 1983 by Goldie Spieler, Earthworks is now run by her son David, along with the capable Earthworks 24 person staff. Red clay ceramic pieces fired to stoneware temperatures make our pottery ideal for home or restaurant. Earthworks have created a fully functional line of tableware in round, square, rectangular and oval shapes. From 20" platters to plates to tiny coasters; bowls in all shapes and sizes. Running parallel in matching colors and patterns are vases, lamps, desk and bathroom accessories.

    St John's Church

    This classic Gothic church was built to replace a previous structure which had been destroyed by hurricane in 1831. The chancel was added to the church in 1876.The Churchyard contains the remains of Ferdinando Paleologus (descendant of Constantine), West Mascot statue and a spectacular view of East Coast.
