J1720 : Abandoned farmhouse and farm buildings in the lower Ghann River Valley

3 km from Rosstrevor, Ireland

Abandoned farmhouse and farm buildings in the lower Ghann River Valley
Abandoned farmhouse and farm buildings in the lower Ghann River Valley
Abandoned farmhouses and cottages are numerous in this valley, but so also are new detached houses, one the result of rural depopulation of the second half of the twentieth century resulting from farm amalgamation and mechanisation (in 1940, 80% of Ulster farms were less than 50 acres in area) and the other a twenty-first century wish of well to do urban commuters to have a modern house in the countryside with some land attached to it. The area is less than 25 minutes travelling distance from Newry.
