The National Trust at Minnowburn
Geology and Ancient History
The site in and around the Minnowburn area has a fascinating geological history.
In 1756 the Commissioners of Inland Navigation for Ireland began work on the Lagan Navigation.
Terrace Hill house is at the centre of Minnowburn and overlooks the Lagan Valley. The original Terrace Hill was built about 1856.
Situated on the bank of the Lagan, on the edge of the Minnowburn property is Edenderry, a village born of Belfast’s famous linen industry.
