Woodlands house

Pictures taken by John on 30 June 2001

"Wintershaven" (Block 12/3 Parcel 268), Woodlands, Montserrat, West Indies; formerly belonging to Betty Winters.

We acquired this house on 5 November 2001.

The house is two or three minutes from Woodlands beach in the northwest of the island, well away from the effects of the volcano that recently devastated the south and east. See map. From the Salem-St Peters main road, take the side road signposted Woodlands Beach. Take the first turning left. The house is immediately on the left.
