Derry City Council is hosting the 2013 European Walled Towns Symposium in later this month. A line-up of international and local speakers, plus hands-on workshops in Derry, Northern Ireland and Raphoe, County Donegal plus a study tour looking at heritage management along the Causeway Coastal Route, should be interest to heritage towns and walled towns across Ireland and Britain. Holywell Trust’s City Walls Heritage Project is helping Derry City Council with organising the symposium. Full details and special packages can be found here.
Volunteers from Foyle Camera Club and professional photographers helped document Wave on the Walls and the 1613 Charter Market. These are now viewable at http://www.walls400.com/derrywallsday
