Heritage Walk

On Saturday, several notable locals will lead a short field trip to places associated with Anthony Trollope and Charlotte Brontë, the two great Victorian writers associated with Banagher.

The meeting point for this event is outside Charlotte’s Way Guesthouse at the top of the Hill, Banagher at 5.30p.m. After visiting St.Paul’s Church participants will move by car to look at the four Napoleonic fortifications built in the early Nineteenth Century to defend Banagher Bridge against the anticipated arrival of French invaders. These include Fort Eliza, the Bridge Barracks, the Martello Tower and Cromwell’s Castle.
