Photographer's Note

When the British first arrived in the Caribbean they set up base on the island of St. Kitts. Here they built the Brimstone Hill Fortress, which is easily the most impressive and best preserved fort in the Caribbean Region. The UNESCO website tells us "Brimstone Hill is an outstanding British fortress, built by slave labour to exact standards during a peak period of European colonial expansion in the Caribbean. Because of its strategic layout and construction, Brimstone Hill Fortress is an exceptional and well preserved example of 17th and 18th century British military architecture."

It is one of the few UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Lesser Antillies and is well worth a visit.

Here you can see the island of St. Eustatius, one of the Netherland Antillies, in the distance.
