Caretaking for Singer Castle on Dark Island

Gerald Heath sits in doorway or windowsill

Gerald Heath was the caretaker of Singer Castle on Dark Island for a decade from the 1950s to the early 1960s. That meant that he lived on the island year-round, staying in the castle’s help’s quarters. His family spent much of their free time there, and his children often helped with some of his tasks, such as lawn care. Collected here are photos of Heath and his family on Dark Island, all courtesy of his son, Doug Heath.
