Sorry but the Hares were too lazy to look this up!!
Port Henderson was established in the late 18th century as a port town and received the fast ferry to Spanish Town (Jamaica's capital at the time). The town became very fashionable during the 19th century, not least because of its natural spa. The town gradually fell out of favour and was badly damaged by hurricane Charlie in 1951, which destroyed the famous spa. Nowadays Port Henderson is a peaceful fishing village (amongst other things!). An important attraction for visitors today is the collection of Georgian Buildings which have been carefully restored by the Jamaican National Trust. Restored buildings and ruins include the Green Castle Great House, the Apostles Battery, Gun Emplacement, Bullock's Lodge and the Longhouse. The most notable of the restored buildings is the Old Water Police Station which is now home to a restaurant, named after the Admiral George Brydges Rodney who successfully fought off the French invasion of Jamaica in 1782. Rodney lived a quarter of a mile uphill from the coast where the elevation provided an excellent vantage point. The site is now called Rodney's lookout.
Situated between Port Henderson and Passage Fort on the seaward side is Fort Augusta. Construction of the fort began in 1740 under very unusual conditions. It was built in a swamp area which had to be filled and many of the workers suffered terribly from fevers and insects. The fort was completed in the 1750s and named Fort Augusta in honour of the mother of King George III.
The fort was built to accommodate 80 guns to guard the western end of Kingston Harbour. In 1763, the magazine with 3000 barrels of gun powder was struck by a bolt of lightning. Three hundred person were killed and windows up to 17 miles away were broken by the blast. The shocks created a crater which had to be filled before reconstruction could begin. By 1765, a new magazine was added to the fort along with a small wharf and a cistern capable of holding 7000 gallons of water. In 1768, the fort had 80 guns in excellent order and by 1770 the magazine was capable of holding 1400 barrels of gun powder.
The fort is currently used as the island's only female prison.
