Our Neighbourhood

The lane in front of Butler's House was once the island's Main Road, bustling with activity from dawn to dusk. It's now a quiet village lane, dotted with charming chattel houses, whose beginnings certainly pre-date my birth.

Homes that can easily be dismantled or moved, chattel houses were much favoured by plantation workers who could literally take their homes with them when leaving a job.

A lane leading to the sea...

A local watering hole...
