BARBADOS - horse racing
Construction of the British Garrison, designed to house the British army, started in 1789, after the purchase of some 64 acres of land. The Garrison was described in its day as having one of the finest parade grounds in the West Indies.
Today some of the existing buildings are still military
barracks, housing the Barbados Defence Force. One of the most impressive
buildings is the Main Guard, easily identified by its clock tower. This
tower bears the date of 1803 and is presently undergoing renovation. In
front of the clock tower you will find the Barbados Cannon Collection,
one of the finest cannon collections in the world. It is one of only two
collections that includes a gun with Cromwell's Republican Arms on it.
After his death, all of Cromwell's possessions were destroyed and the
Barbados cannon with his crest is the only one known to ever be found
