Adjacent to Romney Manor and the Caribelle Batik factory, Wingfield Estate is a former sugar plantation dating back to the mid-1600s. Here, you’ll find ruins of the rare St. Kitts sugar mills, which were powered by water instead of wind. Also on-site are the remains of a stone chimney, a distillery, and an aqueduct system that brought water from the Wingfield River down the slopes of Mount Liamuiga.
Nestled in the foothills of St. Kitts is Wingfield Estate, a collection of colonial-era ruins that were part of the island's first plantation. An important producer of tobacco, sugar and rum, Wingfield was owned by the great-great-great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson, Sam Jefferson. Today, tours weave past a 17th-century sugar mill and rum distillery. A zip-line adventure is also on offer.
