taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Bangor, Northern Ireland

The 'Long Hole', Bangor
The 'Long Hole', Bangor
Another view of the 'Long Hole' at Bangor. This small harbour on the left, now disused, was created when stone was quarried out in the 19th Century - this picture should give an idea of the amount of stone excavated. Belfast Lough is seen to the right.
The remaining thin strip of rock has had concrete laid on top to give a fairly flat surface to walk/drive/land a helicopter on (see LinkExternal link for some related images).
The Long Hole

Also known as the 'Big Hole', this small harbour in Bangor, now silted up and disused, was created when stone was quarried out in the 19th Century.
