The history behind the earliest known map of Portrush

Peter Wilson

    Research output: Other contribution

    Abstract

    Ordinance Survey (OS) maps of Northern Ireland have been produced on a semi-regular basis since the 1830s, so how the layout of Portrush has changed over the past c.190 years is well documented. But what was Portrush like before the OS map-makers first consigned its characteristics to a sheet of paper?
    There is a map of Portrush prepared by D. Dundas and dated to 1796, but perhaps of greater interest is one that is thought to date from either 1605 or 1580 - depending on who you believe.
