Located in the heart of Speightstown, just a stone's throw away from the famous Fisherman's pub is Speightstown pier. Currently under construction the pier cannot actually be explored, none the less it really is a beautiful sight to behold. Running far into the ocean you can just imagine all that happen on this pier, from proposals to picnics. We anxiously await its re-opening so both locals and travellers alike can once again experience it.
The North-Western town of Speightstown is one of the four small towns located in Barbados. It was settled in 1630 and named after William Speight who owned the land at this time. In the 17th century, the town was a major port with ships arriving regularly from England. As you walk through the streets of Speightstown, it is definitely a world in itself. There are remnants of colonial architecture existing with modern buildings which gives you an old world feeling with a dash of the present day intertwined.
