By the Banks of the Bann
The fast flowing Upper Bann has always been at the heart of mid-Ulster, once powering an entire industry which spawned mills, factories, villages and towns along its course. Treat yourself to an unrivalled trip to explore the Bann as it leaps from its early confinement at the Spelga dam, gathering its strength past the now silent mills of Banbridge and the linen villages, until it finally slows to wend its way past Lurgan, through Portadown and on to Lough Neagh.
Stop along the way as Brian Courtney and Brian Cassells share with you their unique insights on the geography, people and history of the Upper Bann while Gillian Lutton’s stunning watercolours reveal to you the hidden treasures to be found around this marvellous stretch of river.
