Caribbean STAY

In a time before a tourism economy existed on Anguilla, salt mining was our main industry.  The Old Salt Factory and Pumphouse at Sandy Ground are a reminder of a time gone by.  The tour takes visitors through the Pumphouse and explains how the mining of the adjacent salt pond was carried out from both a mechanical and human viewpoint.  Photos illustrate how salt was picked from the pond flats, carried and stored for exportation.  Tours are given on Thursdays at 10 a.m. by appointment only.
