– Arnos Vale

Franklyn’s estate, St. David, is a fine example of the ruins of a sugar estate complex. Today, its machinery is known as the ‘Arnos Vale Waterwheel’. It is off Franklyn’s Road, where one can see one of the most impressive plantation sites of Tobago in a scenic setting. One can visit three different sugar cane crushing technologies next to each other. There are the foundations of a windmill, the ruin of a chimney next to a well preserved steam engine, and an iron wheel about 12 m in diameter, on which is stamped 1857. Just behind are the ruins of an aquaeduct which once brought water to the wheel from the nearby river. Source : If only they could talk By Alice & Gerard Besson
