Codrington

Codrington is a ghost town located on the island of Barbuda, which is part of the country of Antigua and Barbuda.Codrington was founded by Christopher Codrington and his brother John in 1685, to be the main residential centre on the island. They built a castle which dominated the town, but it was badly damaged by an earthquake in 1843 and little trace of it now remains.In 1741, the first slave rebellion happened in Codrington. Beach's Rebellion arose as a consequence of manager Thomas Beach's "cruel and tyrannical" behaviour. Several herds of cattle were slaughtered, damage was done to the Codrington's property and equipment. Codrington is served by Barbuda Codrington Airport.The population of Codrington was recorded as 700 in the census of 1904, and 1,252 in the census of 1991. The town, along with the rest of the island, was completely evacuated in September 2017 following catastrophic damage caused by Hurricane Irma.Hurricane IrmaOn 6 September 2017, Hurricane Irma, at Category 5, swept through the town.
