J4972 : The seawall, Newtownards

taken 10 years ago, near to Newtownards, Northern Ireland

The seawall, Newtownards
The seawall, Newtownards
The “seawall” is really a path built on top of the rock armour sea defences. It runs along the northern shore of Strangford Lough, between the sea and the airport. This view is towards the Portaferry Road. An exposed spot. On a breezy day (today) it can be very cold.
Sea defences, Newtownards

The town of Newtownards, on the shore of Strangford Lough, has, during its history, been subject to flooding. This is a collection of photographs showing some of the measures used to protect the town against flooding. Those photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of geographical and historical record only. I have no connection with any official body. They should not be interpreted as expressing any opinion about the adequacy of the defences.
