It's not hard to find this ruin which is on the road to Mt Nevis Hotel. The site is marked well. There is a sign describing the history of this church.

Many visits to Nevis but this was my first to Cottle Church. The grounds are nicely kept, with information about the grounds right there. Amazing

No restroom on the site. It's really a place that you go visit, take pics, read about the history of the place .I spent about 30 minutes there.
