Great start to 2020!

Kicking off the new decade with an award for the Barbican in Glenarm, Co. Antrim! Built in 1825 from local basalt, this medieval miniature castle really takes you back in time. The village of Glenarm dates back to Norman times, claiming to be the oldest town in Ulster!

The word ‘Barbican’ comes from the Old French barbacane, meaning fortified outpost or gateway. Here, the Barbican Gate marks the entrance to Glenarm Castle. It’s located right on the leafy banks of the Glenarm river, as the river makes its way from the village down to the sea.
