THE BARBADOS National Trust 2016 Open House Programme kicked off last week with the showing of the Victorian property Ryland, located in Chelsea Road, St Michael.

The property borders the United Nations Environmental, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) World Heritage site Historic Bridgetown And Its Garrison.

General manager Dr Lennox Honychurch said the Trust runs the programme for a three-month period each year.

“We at Barbados National Trust for almost 30 years have made arrangements to have properties open to the public during the months of January to March. Similarly this year we have 11 open houses scheduled. I think one that would create quite a stir is the old Glendairy Prisons in Station Hill,” he said.

“I have found the turnout today to be exceptionally good considering this is not a big house. But the interest is there. We have had tourists from both England and Canada here today.”
