WEEKS after the principal of the Cave Hill campus promised that the more than a century-old neo-Gothic chapel at the Lazaretto, Black Rock, would not be “demolished and discarded”, the majority of the building has been torn down.

The action has once again raised the ire of the president of the Barbados National Trust, Dr Karl Watson, who said it shows that the island continues to pay lip service to heritage issues.

What is left of the chapel is supposed to be incorporated in a Centre for African and Brazilian studies which is to be constructed on the site.
