Walking tour of Saintfield

2nd May 2018

On Tuesday 1st May we set off on foot into Saintfield to find out a little more about the history of the town. We compared the differences between Main Street in 1910 and today and we also learned about the history of 1st Saintfield Presbyterian Church and the battle of Saintfield. We met Mr Fleming, who told us a little about the history of the church and the battle and he also allowed us into the Guildhall to look at the display of weapons used in the Battle of Saintfield.


We are really looking forward to the second walking tour, when we will learn more about the history of Academy, Fairview and the resting place of two casualties from the Battle of Saintfield.
