Trants was a small village on the east coast, built atop the remains of a prehistoric Amerindian settlement.
The expanse of the land favoured growth of sugar cane, cotton and limes, and Bramble airport was located in close vicinity. Pyroclastic flows and lahars began descending the northeast flank of Soufrière Hills volcano in 1997, dramatically changing the landscape around Trants.
