In the 1960s the ‘New City’ of Craigavon was planned and built from scratch on bogland between the towns of Lurgan and Portadown in Northern Ireland. The planners intended to link these two towns by creating a modern urban area with a single identity. Quality housing, a high-speed railway, modern leisure facilities and employment opportunities were key to this concept.
Most of the plans were never realised and Craigavon failed to develop any true sense of identity.
I am delighted to announce that this work has been published in booklet form with the publisher The Velvet Cell.
