Project 22: Enniskillen – The Development of our County Town

The Spiritual Trail will uncover and promote an unique and vast spiritual heritage located throughout Lough Erne with the aim of creating awareness, understanding, public access and digital visitor experiences.


Project 22: Enniskillen – The Development of our County Town

Researching what lies underground will inform and supplement existing information/available materials on how Enniskillen has developed over the centuries. 

Much research and information is already available, and it is intended that this project will synthesise and build on these, not duplicate. The surveys and community archaeology dig will create interest and engagement with Enniskillen’s history and heritage.  The findings from the survey and the dig will be uploaded and shared on the memory map, along with memories, stories, maps, photos etc which have been captured as part of this project, hence preserving heritage for all to enjoy.

Volunteers will be trained in metal detecting and geophysical surveying and we are encouraging both adults and children to get involved in the 2-week community archaeological dig.

We will shortly be inviting individuals/organisations to tender for the development and delivery of this project

If you would like to avail of any of the volunteering opportunities connected with this project or if you would like further information on the project, please contact Hazel Long call 028 6632 7109 email: hazel.long@rspb.org.uk
