Explore the local legacy of the Ordnance Survey around Lough Foyle.

Friday 17th November one-day public conference.

The conference organised by the Binevenagh & Coastal Lowlands Landscape Partnership & Queens University Belfast will celebrate the end of the ‘Mapping Monuments’ community heritage project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Since November 2021, volunteers have been working on the Mapping Monuments project, carrying out fieldwork and local research to find traces of the Ordnance Survey in the landscape. The conference will explore the project’s findings, as well as see the launch of a new travelling exhibition about the Lough Foyle Baseline and its heritage.

The conference will be opened by Joe Mahon and the day will be filled with hugely knowledgeable speakers – both academics and volunteers who have been working on the project.

The conference will cost £10 and will take place at the Drummond Hotel, Ballykelly, a light lunch will be provided.

There will also be a local field trip on Saturday 18th November to visit sites studied during the Mapping Monuments project. Full programme details will be announced shortly.
