Historic Environment

The ‘historic environment’ encompasses all those material remains that our ancestors have created in the landscapes of the Causeway Coast and Glens area. It covers the whole spectrum of human activity from the largest such as the Glendun viaduct to the smallest such as pottery artefacts in Grangemore. It is the results of thousands of years of human presence in the area (see history of the area section) including the most recent industrial heritage (see industrial heritage section) which has had and is still having an important impact onto our landscape and natural heritage. The human influence in the Causeway Coast and Glens is strongly linked to the sea surrounding the area (see maritime heritage section) and has led to the creation of unique and lively towns and villages (see conservation areas section).
