The Road ‘A Century On’

Sun 5 Aug
Meet at EastSide Visitor Centre

2 PM


The  Newtownards Road of 1918  was very different from ‘the Road’ of today, a century later.  Once home to the industrial  powerhouse of Belfast, most of the industries of east Belfast have gone, as have many of the back-to-back houses and streets, schools and shops on the road.   This one-hour walking tour, led by local 'anorak' Peter McCabe, provides a fascinating glimpse of a bygone Newtownards Road and east Belfast.  Come prepared for a bit of time travel, travelling back to 1918 for one hour only!
