As you drive from Trinity Parish into Saint Thomas Middle Island Parish, you will be treated to the rugged coastline of Old Road Bay. Somewhere along here, the first English settlers arrived aboard the Marmaduke in 1623. Much of this western shoreline has black sand and rocks created by the eruption of Mount Liamuiga from about 1,800 years ago. A small portion of the 3,792 foot stratovolcano is seen on the right. The mount on the left is the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park.
