A Life in Limestone

11am – 1pm

A walking tour of Glenarm village focusing on its industrial heritage led by Janice Witherspoon.

The limestone industry was central to the working life of Glenarm village from the end of the 17th century. On this walk we will explore its development looking at one of the old quarries, the old whiting mill, and the harbour. among other things. We will also see the influence of the Earls of Antrim, who have their castle here, on improvements to the village and look at the potential for the future.

A couple of stretches of road have fairly steep gradients so may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.

This is a FREE event but booking is required.
