GUYANA: MEMORIES: The Demerara Rowing Club – By Geoff Burrowes

Commentary: From Buxton to Buxton — by Francis Quamina Farrier

— by Francis Quamina Farrier

That English Buxton at 960 feet elevation, is the highest above sea level of any town in England. Its population is 23,000.

Though not as large, or as populated as its English counterpart, the Guyana Buxton is one of the lowest villages in Guyana being almost about seven feet below sea level at high tide. At this time (2020) its population is approaching 6,000.        Continue reading
