The Connswater Community Centre, Belfast
Ballymacarret Leisure Centre J3674 : Ballymacarrett Leisure Centre closed as part of a cull of underused centres operated by Belfast City Council. After closure it was refurbished and, in 2006, became the Connswater Community Centre. It's built on the course of what was the old Belfast and County Down Railway to Donaghadee and Newcastle.

The Belfast and County Down Railway



The Belfast and County Down Railway ran from Queen’s Quay station in Belfast to Castlewellan via Comber, Downpatrick and Newcastle. There were also lines from Comber to Donaghadee via Newtownards, Belfast to Bangor and branches from Ballynahinch Jct to Ballynahinch and Downpatrick to Ardglass. The lines opened between 1848 and 1892. All closed by 1950 except for Castlewellan – Newcastle which survived until 1955 as part of the GNR(I) route from Belfast via Banbridge and the Bangor line which remains open but from Belfast Central.
