Military Architecture

Cabrits National Park The best examples of our military architecture are at Cabrits National Park in the North of the island. Fort Shirley and the thirty or so other ruins scattered across the headland show all the details of 18th century British defense systems. A Little battery sits at Fort Cachacrou on top of Scotts Heads. At Fort Young much has change, the outline and fac,ade of the compact little fort can clearly be seen. One of the oldest surviving administrative buildings is the Post Office built in 1810, and the Roseau Town Council building is worth mentioning that it’s one of the last surviving Slave trading compounds in the Caribbean.
