This book is part of the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society’s counties series. This is a companion volume to Sir Charles Brett’s ‘Buildings of County Antrim’, published 1996; also, although less directly, to his ‘Buildings of Belfast’, first published in 1967, the year when he became first chairman of the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society. Once again it represents a personal selection, rather than an inventory, of some of the more interesting or important buildings within the northern part of the old County Down – embracing the whole of the district council areas of North Down, Ards and Castlereagh, and those parts of the District Council areas of Lisburn and Craigavon which lie within the old boundaries of the county.
Like its predecessors, the book deals with all the surviving grand houses of the county, and also those who lived in them. Antiquities, mansions, cottages, churches, public buildings, follies and memorials are all described. There is an intriguing mixture of architectural history, archaeology, local history, gossip, description, and comment. The ownership information should be of considerable interest to family historians.
You can get a bundle of Buildings of County Antrim, Armagh and North County Down for just £50, a saving of £22 against the usual selling price. Just go to our Book Bundles category in our shop for some great savings! Offer excludes postage.
