When I were a lad......my father took photographs of us sitting astride big guns on the island. That was some 33 years ago.
On subsequent visits, for one reason or another (usually simply running out of time!) I have failed in seeking out these big guns again. Not having even seen photos of them on-line I was starting to wonder if they were still there. And after 33 years, exactly where they were.
Then last week as I was exploring the south coast on Google Earth, I stumbled across them again.
They may not be high on the must see sites for everybody but I will definately visit them again on our next visit.
Located just south of the eastern end of the main runway at Grantley Adams airport - and to think I thought they were at Gun Hill! Duh!
Are these guns still readily accessible? Potentially valuable as scrap metal, are they preserved under a flag of historical interest? Info on them would be interesting. Thanks.
