Fernagh Drive, Whiteabbey
Fernagh Drive, Whiteabbey
Part of the eastern side of Fernagh Drive. The development dates from 1949/50 and was part of the “garden village” concept – see J4792 : Garden Village, Whitehead for an explanation. Knockagh monument J3686 : Co Antrim war memorial, Knockagh is at middle top.
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.
