Heritage

Farley Hill

A fantastic ruined mansion, secreted in a breathtaking forest of mahogany overlooking the Atlantic coast. Farley Hill is a great location for walks, picnics, weddings and other events. Built in 1818 and expanded gradually over the next half century, the mansion stood in splendor until 1965, when after the shooting of the film 'Island in the Sun' the mansion was sadly destroyed by fire.

St Nicholas Abbey

Built in 1660, St Nicholas Abbey in the parish of St Peter is one of three genuine Jacobean mansions in the western hemisphere. Well-preserved and maintained, the abbey has a rich and colourful history attached to it. Built by a Colonel Benjamin Berringer, he was neighbour to John Yeamans, later knighted. A tale of adultery involving Yeamans and Mrs Berringer culminated in a duel in which Berringer was killed. Maginificent architecture and historical pieces make this attraction a must-see.
