Long Description:
This statue of a lion was carved out of a single piece of rock in 1868 by an officer from a nearby signal station.

Gun Hill Signal Station, located in the parish of St.George, provides a magnificent and captivating view of the entire island!

It is the finest of a series of signal stations built in 1818. These stations sighted ships approaching Barbados and signaled to each other in warning of the approaching vessel. They were also used to warn of slave rebellions on the island.
