Ulster Garden Villages
The concept of the “garden village” was pioneered in Co Antrim by Thomas McGrath who, it is said, was influenced by the French architecture he had seen while serving in WW1. In 1946 he formed Ulster Garden Villages Limited to build estates at six places in, or close to, east Antrim. Merville is the best known and Whitehead is, perhaps, the least known.. The architect for all the schemes was E Prentice Mawson, eldest son of Thomas Hayton Mawson the Edwardian landscape gardener.
