Codrington Theological College
Codrington Theological College Review
An impressive stand of royal palms lines the road leading to the coral-stone buildings and serene grounds of Codrington College, an Anglican theological seminary opened in 1745 on a cliff overlooking Conset Bay. The benefactor of the college was Christopher Codrington III (1668–1710), a former governor-general of the Leeward Islands whose antislavery views were unpopular in the plantocracy of the times. In an effort to "Christianize" the slaves and provide them with a general education, Codrington's will established that "300 negroes at least" would always be allowed to study at the institution; the planters who acted as trustees, however, were loath to teach the slaves how to read and write. You're welcome to tour the buildings, explore the grounds, and walk the nature trails. Keep in mind, though, that beachwear is not appropriate here.
