Point of Interest

Old Prison

Anguilla / Americas

The Old Prison at Crocus Hill is situated 3.6 miles southwest of Sandy Hill and is 213 feet above sea level, one of Anguilla’s highest points.  Here you will find the ruins of this historic jail just a short distance off the road in amongst the bushes.  The abandoned site still retains much of its eerie atmosphere.  Take a look at the broken glass-topped walls and tiny spaces, where prisoners lived in extremely poor conditions before the site suffered irreparable damage during a major hurricane.  The ruins are a piece of the island’s history and though in themselves not spectacular, there are great views from this point.
