Maggotty is a small town near the head of the Black River
Maggoty Estate is now known as Kenilworth and the 17th century ruins of the sugar factory on this estate are considered the best example of old industrial architecture in the island. The most prominent buildings in these ruins are the sugar boiling house and distillery, the long rectangular sugar mill and a two- storey limestone building with a flight of semicircular stairs leading to an arched doorway. The windows are oval. A graveyard further up a hill has the grave of an early owner, Thomas Blagrove, whose family also owned Cardiff Hall estate in St Ann.
