Stranorlar, Co. Donegal

Backleas

Duration: 45 Mins

A new garden combined with old natural woodland.  The garden is of some historic significance in that the remains of an aqueduct dug during the famine as a relief project to convey water to a corn mill two miles away is still visible.  Indeed stone mill wheels, a famine pot and lots of bog oak also feature.  The entrance to the house is built with stone in the same manner as an ancient fort on the farm.
