windmills Sweet secrets of Barbados

The Times travel section of 15th Jan carried an article entitled "Sweet secrets of Barbados" which rather than concentrating on the typical beach holiday experience there, considers the enormous heritage that sugar cane has left on the island. This heritage includes the magnificently restored windmill at Morgan Lewis, which the article covers. Unfortunately the article has been edited from what the author originally submitted, in such a way that it now reads as if Morgan Lewis is the only remaining windmill on the island, rather than being the only remaining restored and working windmill. There are in fact many remaining windmills on the island, as my Windmills of Barbados survey shows (though I recently covered news of the destruction of one of the mills given in my survey).
