All Saints’ Church
The All Saints’ Chapel was erected by governor Sir H. MacLeod with the foundation stone being laid by Lady Henrietta MacLeod on November 4, 1844. It was consecrated in 1848 by Bishop Parry of Barbados, as a chapel-of-ease for Trinity parish. All Saints’ was later enlarged and made an independent church in 1868.
The church was built in the neo-gothic architectural style with Lavantille stone in a coarse ashler pattern. It features a double gabled roof with tall lancet windows and rondel windows in gable ends. The interior features hard wood roof trusses and a highly ornate and unique altar.
