Valleys in Manchester Jamaica

by Anon

Question: Name the valleys that are located in Manchester, Jamaica?

Answer by Rosa-Lee Phang

Manchester was named after the 19th governor of Jamaica, William Montagu.

Situated in the county of Middlesex, its capital, Mandeville, is home to the very popular Apple Valley Park and is the only parish capital that does not sit near to a coastal line or river.

It is also a one of a kind parish, one that maintains a cool to cold atmosphere all year round. Located in the west central part of the island Jamaica, it’s also home to some noble and profound people like Norman Manley who is one of seven national heroes, athletes, Sherone Simpson and Nesta Carterand musicians, Luciano and Garnett Silk, to name a few.

As a fast growing parish next to Kingston, the Manchester area is filled with a great lineup of businesses such as Alcan and Alpart bauxite companies, and contains rich history about some of the country’s first inhabitants.

Though parks are sometimes associated with valleys, there is not be a vast number of theme parks in this area. But you can still find valleys that are not just a simple community.

Some of them includes attraction that are worth visiting. These are Great valley, Canoe valley, Adams valley and George’s valley.

Located latitude 17o and longitude -77o, Canoe valley is near to some familiar places such as Alligator Pond, Alligator Hole River, Blue Hole and Milk River.

It is also said to have been home to the indigenous Taino Indians. History reveals that the area is also furnish with cottons trees that the Amerindians used to carve canoes and small craft (no surprise that today we can still buy small crafts en route).

Adams Valley is home of Adams valley Farm. To my knowledge you can actually do a tour of the place if you are ever in the area.

As for Great Valley and George’s Valley, there is no known attraction directly in these two areas but you can be sure to find attractions close enough toventure.

And of course if you do feel the need to stop over, there are affordable hotels and guest houses to choose from.

It’s never a dull moment in Manchester

The stories of the deep paths and silent waters that runs underground and keeps the valleys connected are stories to be heard.

There are also major major mountain ranges which includes unexplored caves and a very special attraction, Captain Alexander Woodburn Heron’s Tomb, otherwise called Heron Hill by the locals.
