St Mary’s Anglican Church

Montego Bay & Northwest Coast

St Mary’s Anglican Church stands on a knoll overlooking the remains of the sugar factory, not far from the ruins of the Montpelier great house. It’s a lovely cut-stone building, moldering but all the more beautiful for that, with a cornerstone that dates back to 1847.
