Falmouth is the chief town and capital of Trelawny parish, Jamaica. Falmouth, capital of the Parish of Trelawny, is situated on Jamaica's north coast near Montego Bay. Founded by Thomas Reid in 1769, Falmouth flourished as a county seat and market center for the Parish of Trelawny for forty years. Jamaica had become the world's leading sugar producer. The town was named after the birthplace of His Excellency Sir William Trelawny, Falmouth, Cornwall, Britain, and is noted for being one of the Caribbean's best-preserved historic towns.

Trelawny Parish Church of St. Peter the Apostle

Trelawny Parish Church of St. Peter the Apostle
Made by MightyBoyBrian
Q: When does a two hour car ride turn into a three hour car ride? A: When you driver stops four times for the sights and smells This is Trelawny Parish Church of St. Peter the Apostle which is part of the Diocese of Jamaica and the Cayman islands. My group got out and briefly explored the interior and the grounds. The interesting thing about the church is that it was constructed using the ballast stones from ships coming to collect sugar cane and other Jamaican goods. Good idea! Also, there was a groundskeeper who wanted to give us a tour. While that's all nice and good, we decided to do our own thing and when we started to leave he still wanted some cashola. I told him we wouldn't pay him anything but part of me wishes that I had pointed out that the grounds didn't look very kept anyway.

While w a group of us were walking though the town of Falmouth, I noticed a big red iron gate with a small square hole. Being an adventurous photographer, I decided to take a peek with the camera through the whole to peek at the secrets hidden behind the gate.

The door to one of the old buildings in the town of Falmouth. This building and door have definitely seen better days, however the blue despite being weathered still had some vibrancy to it.
