Description

It seems scarcely credible that there are Caribbean islands rich with a British architectural legacy that is largely unknown to the rest of the world. These are sensational beauties that are descended from a legacy of slavery, including Palladian sugar factories and slave hospitals, churches, castles and naval forts, all survivors from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Whether in picturesque ruin or hanging on for dear life by the slenderest of bricks and stones and creepers, these are remarkable structures in which the islanders of today, most particularly, take pride. Lucinda Lambton's infectious curiosity and roving lens combine here to create a feast of a book, and offer an entirely new perspective on these otherwise familiar islands of Jamaica, Barbados, St Lucia and their Caribbean neigBBours.
