D3115 : Glenarm marina

Glenarm marina
Glenarm marina
Glenarm harbour was used mainly for the export of limestone from the nearby quarry. Both were at one time owned by Ross & Marshall who also owned a fleet of puffers. Puffers were frequent visitors loading out limestone. The harbour became too small for modern shipping and became an eyesore after years of disuse. At one time it was used as a dump for bits of fallen cliff face after winter landslides on the coast road. It was re-built as a marina in the early part of this century. The area still needs the removal of another eyesore D3115 : The Whitings, Glenarm.
