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

Bannister for preservation as a museum gave the mill to the Barbados National Trust. The site was listed in the 1996 World Monuments Watch, with Restoration began by the Barbados National Trust during the following summer. In 1997. The... More

It will be more interesting once this mill is restored and working. Otherwise, not a lot to see here.

Great place to make a quick stop and visit one of only two sugar windmills that are still operational (along with Betty's Hope in Antigua). Best part of this visit is the pictures of the mill and the surrounding areas. Beautiful scenery surrounds the mill and the landscape by the mill. Well worth a visit while in Barbados.

The only one left! Worth the trip to the east central side of the island. it is very close to the abbey and to Cherry Tree Hill. it is actually on the same road just a few miles apart. The highlight of my Wife's visit.

I only wish the mill was turning the day we visited. Almost looked like we were walking onto someone's private farm. I wasn't going to get out of the car until a big tour van pulled up and dumped a group out.

I went to this mill back in 1995 and have been there every year since,it was pressing sugar cane some years but that stopped for a while but I think it is back working now.I would say it is worth a visit if you are in the area,it is an interested drive along the east coast.
