Residents are being encouraged to vote for the Heritage Hub at Carnlough Town Hall as it is shortlisted for a 2019 Heritage Angels Award in the Best Heritage Research and Interpretation category.

These annual awards aim to celebrate unsung angels of local heritage- individuals or groups, who have rescued an historic building or site, worked as craftsmen or apprentices, or recorded and interpreted a historic place.

It isn’t just about heritage, but the people that make heritage projects happen. Showcasing what is possible when people take interest in and take action for the care and consideration of our heritage.

Mayor Maureen Morrow said: “We are thrilled by the news that the Heritage Hub at Carnlough Town Hall has been shortlisted for a 2019 Heritage Angels Awards.

“The Hub’s exhibition explores the history of settlers from the Stone Age, to industrialists of the 19th Century who developed the harbour, Limestone quarry and mineral railway line. It also covers the natural and geological resources of the area, highlighting it’s beautiful landscape and maritime history.

“The Hub is a community resource which also aims to showcase more of what is on offer for visitors to Carnlough and encourages them to explore deeper into the Glens within the Mid and East Antrim area.”
