Killyleagh harbour (1)
Killyleagh harbour (1)
Killyleagh’s fortunes were closely linked with linen and leather. Both have now gone. The small harbour was used by a local merchant to import coal. That, too, is history with the last ship calling in 1991. The harbour has been redeveloped for housing. This view could be any one of many similar developments anywhere save for the parish church of St John the Evangelist in the background. It was consecrated in 1640. The spire was added in 1825. The churchyard contains the grave of the Hon Henry Blackwood, the captain of HMS Euryalus at the Battle of Trafalgar.
