The Comber Greenway, Dundonald (8)
The Greenway, although built of the course of the old railway, does not quite run in a straight line. The path tends to avoid the damp ground – in this case through the use of a few squiggles. The view is back towards Grand Prix Park J4173 : Lane, Dundonald.
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.
