Faded red bricks


Today we continue our look at abandoned government buildings. 

ONE OF THE features of Garrison Savannah is the old-style red brick buildings, protected as historical treasures under the Barbados National Trust.

However, like too many such buildings, two of them – the former headquarters of the CXC and the former offices of the Land Registry/Town Planning Department – are empty and decaying.

The buildings are located near the road facing the racetrack, close to the similarly red-bricked Barbados Museum, view of passing traffic and horse racing fans.

When the WEEKEND NATION arrived, tourists were taking pictures in front of the building as if it is already a ruin although it may well be heading there should nothing be done to arrest the decay. (CA)
