Patton's Marsh, Newtownards :: J4971


An area of salt marsh, on the northern shore of Strangford Lough. Used, in season, by the Newtownards Wildfowler’s Association. It looks like a treacherous spot where the unwary could sink very easily.

Sea defences, Newtownards

The town of Newtownards, on the shore of Strangford Lough, has, during its history, been subject to flooding. This is a collection of photographs showing some of the measures used to protect the town against flooding. Those photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of geographical and historical record only. I have no connection with any official body. They should not be interpreted as expressing any opinion about the adequacy of the defences.
