This is a beautiful historical site. It tells great history of the island and what the slaves went through on the sugar plantation. One of the mills was restored to actually display the process of crushing and extracting the juice from the sugarcane itself (this was told to me by my driver). I did not get to experience it as...

A restored Sugar mill with plenty of information about the history of sugar and slavery on Antigua. Well worth a brief visit.

A lovely old windmill and a small museum about the Sugar Mill Industry here so not that much to see but it was very nice although it needs some tidying up a bit.
