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

This is a beautifully restored church with lots of information provided. It's in very good condition considering how long it has stood there. It's well worth a visit but mind the ants and mosquitoes!

Not much there but interesting that solves built this church and worshiped there. Interesting reading in the hut adjacent to the church about the silvery and how some of the owners treated them. Well worth the time

Ruins and history of a historic church. Take a few minutes to stop and learn about Nevis and the way they worshipped.

A bit out of the way but very accessible by a decent road up towards the hotel. There is a pavilion in the corner with much literature and the essential story.

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.
