Old chimney, Bangor
Old chimney, Bangor
The old chimney by the railway line in Bangor as viewed from the Brunswick Road (see J5081 : Old chimney, Bangor from 2011 with further information).

The adjoining sheds J5081 : Former engine shed, Bangor (1) have all been removed and this chimney is the last remaining relic. It has been reported locally that the chimney will also be demolished by the end of March 2021. This is the view over the railway itself - note the poor condition of the brickwork and trailing ivy.
The Belfast and County Down Railway



The Belfast and County Down Railway ran from Queen’s Quay station in Belfast to Castlewellan via Comber, Downpatrick and Newcastle. There were also lines from Comber to Donaghadee via Newtownards, Belfast to Bangor and branches from Ballynahinch Jct to Ballynahinch and Downpatrick to Ardglass. The lines opened between 1848 and 1892. All closed by 1950 except for Castlewellan – Newcastle which survived until 1955 as part of the GNR(I) route from Belfast via Banbridge and the Bangor line which remains open but from Belfast Central.
