Large working mill on a sugar plantation. We didn't go in but the mill is an impressive structure. Part of the Barbados National Trust.

One of 2 working Sugar Mills left in the world. A living museum. Only functions a few months out of the year, but a history of the Sugar industry on the island. Isolated in the sugar fields. Not an easy find but worth the trip....More

Given the mill is still working and it's on the way to St. Nicholas Abbey (or at least about 10 minutes away) it's a must stop for anyone who is into historical landmarks and sugar cane/rum history of Caribbeans. TIP: it's in a pretty rough...More

Great place to take in scenic views of the eastern side of Barbados. Was very quiet as we drove down from cherry tree hill towards Bathsheba bay. Would recommend as part of sight seeing on the east coast.

Our tour made a quick stop at Morgan Lewis windmill for photo-ops, and our guide was able to explain a lot of history behind the mill and the now-defunct others on the island. A real surprise in the eastern Caribbean.

Located in an isolated area but well worth the drive. A nice place to spend 30 mins or so and the view from here is spectacular.

It is isolated, but worth the drive to see this Dutch looking Stone giant windmill. During off season it sits in a majestic view

Is the last sugar windmill to operate in Barbados. The mill stopped operating in 1947. In 1962, its owner Egbert L. Bannister for preservation as a museum gave the mill to the Barbados National Trust. The site was listed in the 1996 World Monuments Watch,...More
