Inscription.
C.O.’s Quarters 1782, rebuilt 1824
These quarters were never used by Admiral Rodney; he preferred to stay on his flagship “in comfort”.

Traces of a kitchen garden were found above to the left, behind the water tank, and two patios in a B-shape were discovered when the road was built. The quarters used part of the same water catchment system coming from the barracks above. The tower structure is a twentieth-century addition, used by Josset Legh as a wind generator.

 
Erected by Saint Lucia National Trust.
