Did you know?

Winding through the course is the ancient aqueduct that was used to grind sugar-cane in the plantation era. Take a close look at the supporting pillars and you'll see their year of construction - 1761. Occupying majestic preeminence is the Cinnamon Hill Great House, built in the mid-18th Century by Edward Barrett (of the famed Barretts of Wimpole Street). The property became the second home of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash for thirty years.
