The Garrison tunnels are around 200 years old and are a real mysterious, historic landmark. Crime, punishments, executions and murders all were regular occurrences in this underground activity. The tunnel lies 12 to 17 feet beneath the Garrison area, the tunnel comprises 2 miles of underground networking. Whilst it’s suggested they were used for drainage and for the movement of soldiers around sites, they also give huge reminders of the slave trade.
The Chase Burial Vault in the southern parish of Christ Church was the final resting place of the Chase family, but it’s the way they ‘rested’ which interests the Barbadian folk, did they even ‘rest’ at all? In 1883 the vault was opened for the burial of a family member, the coffins had allegedly been ‘displaced’ and some were found upside down. It was said that whenever the vault was reopened the coffins were never in their places and there was no evidence of human interference. They’ve since been relocated and the vault abandoned but it’s still fun to speculate anyway.
