Understanding Our Area – People and Places was a cross-community project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme. It set out to increase the understanding and expression of our culture and history, our people and places, through museum collections, historic sites and cultural heritage using interpretation, arts and multimedia to create a peace building legacy. The initiative is part of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s PEACE IV Local Area Action Plan, funded by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, which is providing £3.8 million for community projects across the borough.

Between 2017 and 2020, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services supported a range of community-led projects, along with a range of events, showcases and resources exploring the history of the Causeway area.

Dervock & District Community Association developed a heritage trail taking in key sites in the story of the village. They also produced a book detailing the townland names in the parish of Derrykeighan and collating family names connected with the area over the years. Their book, which brings names connected to the area from a variety of sources together will prove a useful tool for anyone connected to or interested in the parish.

Hardcopies of both the heritage trail and book are free and can be picked up from Visitor Information Centres across the borough, from Ballymoney Museum, or by contacting Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services through this website.

Digital copies of both the heritage trail and book may be downloaded from RESOURCES.
