Our tour made a quick stop at Morgan Lewis windmill for photo-ops, and our guide was able to explain a lot of history behind the mill and the now-defunct others on the island. A real surprise in the eastern Caribbean.
Located in an isolated area but well worth the drive. A nice place to spend 30 mins or so and the view from here is spectacular.
Is the last sugar windmill to operate in Barbados. The mill stopped operating in 1947. In 1962, its owner Egbert L.

Great place to make a quick stop and visit one of only two sugar windmills that are still operational (along with Betty's Hope in Antigua). Best part of this visit is the pictures of the mill and the surrounding areas. Beautiful scenery surrounds the mill and the landscape by the mill. Well worth a visit while in Barbados.

I went to this mill back in 1995 and have been there every year since,it was pressing sugar cane some years but that stopped for a while but I think it is back working now.I would say it is worth a visit if you are in the area,it is an interested drive along the east coast.
I didn't realize until doing this tour how much wind power was used in auger cane crushing or the large number of windmills on this island. You will see the stone towers with nothing on top everywhere but here you can see what one should look like. We spent 15 minutes here which is plenty. Take pictures.
The mill itself was shut for renovations, however you could take pictures of the mill itself and some of the machinery lying about, the drive up there was lush and green,a and very scenic
