Golden Grove cave revealed

AS THE ISLAND celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Bussa Slave Rebellion, a chance rediscovery has hinted that there is more history to be found beneath the fields of St Philip.

Yesterday, the SUNDAY SUN was called to Golden Grove, less than 300 metres away from the area’s Great House and a few miles away from Bayley’s Plantation, the site of the April 14-16, 1816 slave revolt, to explore a cave that was recently rediscovered.

A stone’s throw away from verdant fields of agricultural produce, the mouth of a hole yawned. There is a glimpse of a rubble stone column as the darkness inside beckons the curious. Under the shelf of a rock a few feet thick, the interior gently slopes downward before levelling out and angling to the east.

Please read the full story in today’s Sunday Sun, or in the eNATION edition.
