Welchman Hall Gully
his Barbados National Trust property situated just about in the centre of the island. This property offers about a one mile hike through a deep, densely wooded gully filled with a tremendous variety of trees, plants and
flowers. The Gully was actually once a part of the network of caves linked to Harrison’s Cave until its roof collapsed, forming the gully. This is why
Welchman Hall is so much deeper and intense than the hundreds of other gullies that ribbon the island. While the gully was first tended to in 1860 by its then owners, it later fell to neglect until the Trust adopted the property in 1962. With that, Welchman Hall Gully became the island’s first organized natural site. The Gully boasts every shade of green imaginable in a cool, natural setting with impressive stands of bamboo, splashes of colorful flowers and looming decorative and fruit-bearing trees. The trail is well-marked and with your brochure guide, you can easily identify the many trees and blooms in the Gully. This is another peaceful setting that has an almost library-like silence, broken only occasionally by squawking birds or monkeys crashing around in the trees above.
