St. Thomas Anglican Church in Middle Island. Still in use today. The roof was damaged by hurricanes in the second half of the 1990’s. The roof has since been repaired (but not the belfry). The steeple/belfry was damaged by an earthquake some years ago (1974 possibly). Hurricanes have also done some damage to what remains of the belfry. The small white shed in front of the bottom right corner of the church building is the tomb of Sir Thomas Warner, the first English settler on the island. The tomb of the grandfather of Andrew Jackson (US president) is next to Sir Thomas Warner’s tomb.
