History on your doorstep at the Carnlough Heritage Hub

At the Carnlough Heritage Hub you can luxuriate in the industrial, geological and natural heritage of the local area and the surrounding Glens of Antrim. Find out about Frances Anne Van Tempest; Lady Londonderry, who developed the limestone industry in the mid 19th century, resulting in the building of the picturesque village of Carnlough that we enjoy today. Explore the history of mining in the Glens, maritime trade with England and Scotland and the civil engineering behind William Bald's Coast Road on the world-famous Causeway Coastal Route.

The Carnlough Heritage Hub is within three miles of Channel Vista. There is no entrance charge and groups can be catered for on request. Guided walks of Carnlough and Glenarm are also available, price negotiable depending on size of group.

Visitors typically spend about half an hour to an hour in the Heritage Hub and you're always welcome to stay for a cup of tea and a biscuit and share stories with the volunteers. Guided walks take approximately one hour.

Parking is convenient in the car park beside the Spar less than 5 minutes walk away and the Heritage Hub is normally open from Easter to June, Sundays 2-5pm, July to September, Saturdays and Sundays 2-5pm. Groups can book other times by appointment.
