Old Providence Island

Welcome! This website has 27 photographs taken during my stay in early 2014, accompanied by captions explaining something of the fascinating history of this little-known island. If you’re a commissioning editor looking for copy or photos, feel free to email Tom Feiling at But if it’s tourist information you’re after, you’re better off talking to Mr. Google.

If you’d like to know more about Providence past and present, have a look at my book The Island that Disappeared: Old Providence and the Making of the Western World.
