The Ordnance Survey Memoirs are a uniquely detailed source for the history of the northern half of Ireland immediately before the Great Famine. They were written in the 1830s to accompany the Ordnance Survey maps, but were not published at the time. In these new editions they act as a 19th century Domesday book and are essential to the understanding of the cultural heritage of their communities. They document the landscape and situation, buildings and antiquities, land-holdings and population, and employment and livelihood of the parishes. This volume contains the Memoirs for 8 parishes and granges in northeast Antrim, paints a panoramic picture of the renowned Giant's Causeway and adjacent coastline, and details the towns of Ballymoney and Bushmills and the famous castle at Dunluce.
