Gateways to Strangford & Lecale

This publication has been produced by the Strangford Lough & Lecale Partnership (SLLP) as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund ‘Turn O’ The Tide’ programme which works with local people to celebrate different aspects of heritage in the region.

In this project, the focus was on farming and rural communities, and the old gateways dotted through the landscape seemed symbolic of the changes the countryside has seen over the years.

The restoration and promotion of these intricate features of rural architecture were chosen at the beginning of a project to highlight our agricultural landscape and the people who live and work there.
