The Long Hole, Bangor
The Long Hole, an abandoned quarry hole, functioned as the home of Bangor's fishing fleet. With the increase in trawler size and a marked reduction in the number of boats using the 'hole' as well as the awkward entry to the Long Hole and the silting of the inlet led to its abandonment..
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.
