Our walking tour will explore these buildings in further detail, including Newry-born architect W. J. Barre’s Riverside Presbyterian Church, the canal side quay warehouses, and several buildings on the UAH/HED Heritage at Risk register. We will also take a visit to Newry Cathedral to discuss Consarc’s water ingress remedial works and how action is required to prepare for the impact of climate change in our cities.
