Bunkers Hill Phase II

Client: Newry, Mourne and Down District Council

The Challenge

To continue to enhance Bunkers Hill as a resource for the local community in Castlewellan.


The Role

In November 2014, we hosted a community consultation event to discuss the new trails and play trail and capture suggestions for future improvement.

Since then several community events have taken place at Bunkers Hill including wildflower planting (June 2015) and a Festival of Flight community barbeque (August 2015) both organised our Mourne Forest Recreation Officer, Boyd McClurg.

The following upgrade works were provided at Bunkers Hill:
• Development of a small car parking area for disabled users at the top of the laneway
• Re-surfacing of the laneway
• Installation of new gates including coded lock for disabled users to access the car park
• Installation of two new wooden shelters along the multi-use trail
• Installation of dog bins along the multi-use trail

We appointed the CPM Team (R Robinson & Sons) and Contractors (R Fee Contracts) who completed the works in 2016.
