Escape Heritage Park

The old sugar mill at Escape, Argyle, will be the centre piece of a new heritage landscape on the Windward side of St Vincent. The Mill was water powered and a large water wheel is still in location. There are several ruined buildings on the site ready to be restord into a working museum of St Vincent's agricultural history. Also at the site will be the Yambou 1 petroglyphs which will have moved the half-mile from their current location at the Argyle Airport site. Meaning a visitor can walk through 2,000 years of Vincentian history in one afternoon. The mill had been lost, swallowed up by the forest, until it was rediscovered by engineers working on the new airport in 2007. This is an exciting project which we hope will be well underway soon.
