Directions to Codrington College
You can't miss this historical attraction as you drive along because of its characteristic magnificent row of Royal Palms which line its splendid driveway and lovely huge lily pond. The impressive buildings of Codrington College are reminiscent of an Oxford quadrangle, yet blend perfectly with the surrounding trees and hills of St. John. Christopher Codrington, planter, soldier, scholar and philanthropist who in 1710 left his two estates in Barbados to endow an institution of higher education in 'physics and chirurgery, as well as divinity' so that good could be done amongst the mens' souls and bodies, a nature trail identifying the varied natural heritage of the island, and a plan of the College building built in 1743.
The College, which from 1875 to 1955 was affiliated to the University of Durham, in England, enabling its students to qualify for degrees from that university, has since 1965 been affiliated to the University of the West Indies. It functions at present as a theological college of the Anglican church of the Providence of the West Indies.
