Directions to Welchman Hall Gully
Welchman Hall Gully provides a beautiful mile long walk through an abundance of flourishing tropical trees, plants and flowers that are well labeled. There are benches strategically placed throughout the gully where visitors can sit, relax and enjoy the tranquility or enjoy a picnic. The troop of Barbados Green Monkeys that have made the gully their home are spotted throughout the day but they are fed at 10am and 2pm so that is a good time to observe them at close quarters.
When the Barbados National Trust was established 50 years ago in 1961, Welchman Hall Gully was the first property acquired. 200 years ago the gully was owned by a Welchman, General William Asygell Williams, who planted an exotic orchard including a nutmeg grove, clove trees, citrus and palms. The trust did many improvements including a pathway and added considerably to the plant and tree collection. Today Welchman Hall Gully is under the capable and devoted stewardship of Deborah Branker. Apart from keeping the gully full of healthy plants and trees, Deborah is working with Professor Sean Carrington of the University of the West Indies in the preservation of Barbados native wild plants. Many of these plants are believed to have healing qualities in the Bajan folklore. Visitors of all ages will enjoy a visit here. It is located just 5 minutes away from Harrisons Cave.
