Part of doing this project is identifying appropriate sites for exploration, further research and visual documenting. As a starting point I have been able to use the website of the Jamaica National Heritage Trust where I found a list of great houses in locations around the island. The site lists many historical and heritage sites and has helped me to focus on sites which are in the area of St Ann, which is where I have been based on this trip .
Today, we are going to take a look at three possible sites of interest to see what’s there and see whether it will be possible to do some photowork within the boundaries of the estates in which they are located.
The sites are
- Drax Hall Water wheel
- Belmont Great House
- Roaring River Great House
All three locations are in St Ann.
