Plantation, Christ Church, was at one time a sugar estate of over 300
acres. Evidence of its past in the sugar business, is the millwall
which still exists on the property.
Plantation is home to the Barbados Horticultural Society, created in
1927, it is one of the oldest associations of its kind in the British
