Barbados HARP gun

prev next

Canon Powershot D10


A little-known or advertised scenic spot on the island - the now disused HARP gun project from the 1960s - an endeavour shrouded in secrecy where a US funded project tried to discern the feasability of shooting satellites (allegedly) into space from earth.

It's a relatively tricky spot to find and involves a 20min walk through a pasture but is well worth the trip, especially given the fact not too many know about it or visit it. Best place is to park at the end of the road to the north-east and then walk down the cart track to the cliff and continue along the track until you come across the large guns.
