The Charming Community Of Beeston Spring in Westmoreland, Jamaica - posted 5/11/11

Winner of the 2010 Best Community in Jamaica Contest, (see link below) I am proud to say I hail from this quaint but fruitful little rural farming community in Westmoreland, Jamaica!

It's one of those Jamaican communities where everybody knows everybody -literally! And where it is the community grows the child, true 'old time' Jamaican style.

If you are familiar with the famous Bluefields Beach, then you can find Beeston Spring just east/northeast from there.

In fact, driving through Brighton and Robins River, it is no more than about 5 minutes drive from Bluefields!

You can also drive in directly from the south (Achindown or Whitehouse area), that's about 3 miles or 5 kilometers from there.

We have a small post office, a Type 1 health center, and more recently, a small public library. We also have a primary school, that's Salem Primary and Junior High was Salem All Age in my time :-) and of course, the natural spring!

Also of note is the fact that we have several churches, these include a Seventh Day Adventist church, Pentecostal, Anglican and the Salem Moravian church - the one my family grew up in, and are still ardent members of.

The community was a recent beneficiary of the Sandals Foundation where some small, but significant upliftment projects took place.

From what I gather, Beeston Spring was initially an estate that contained many acres of splendid woodland. Salem, the later named sub-district was purchased by one A. B. Lind in 1860.

Other sub districts or areas in Beeston Spring include Coffee Gully, Point, Left Hall, Bottom Ground, Silent Lane and Zion.

The spring (still gushing gallons of water each minute in the community) was kept as a public community water supply through a deed gift to the Moravian church by Lind on his retirement in 1891. Read more on that history here.

According to HealthAccessJamaica, the community has about 5000 individuals.

If you are interested in it's geographical coordinates then note that it is 18° 8' 0" North, 77° 58' 0" West.

By the way, I must tell you that my late Dad (Lindel Gayle) affectionately called "Beeston Spring" in Montego Bay - the same name of our community!

I came to Bluefields Bay two weeks ago -- in front of Hurricane Issac-- as part of a photo shoot at Bluefields Bay Seaside Villas. It wasn't my first time visiting. I've been returning to Bluefields over the last 15 years and I was delighted by how beautiful Westmoreland was looking. I had a chance to visit and photograph an organic farm that guests at the villas are welcome to tour and was very impressed by the quality of the produce. I look forward to returning.
