The Ballyskeagh High Bridge, Drumbeg/Lambeg :: Shared Description


A two-arch bridge, built about 1760 of local sandstone, carrying the Ballyskeagh Road (from Drumbeg to Lambeg) across the towpath and disused Lagan canal. The road is much higher than the canal an interesting challenge for a civil engineer 250 years ago. The bridge is narrow and now has a separate footbridge on the northern side. There is no direct access from the bridge to the towpath. Pedestrians and cyclists use the entrance to McIlroy Park on the Belfast side of the bridge.
