Crom Estate is home to a wide variety of species and habitats and rich in cultural heritage. For this project this legacy will be built upon by reinstating 18th century historical walking grounds by opening 10.5km of paths to increase access for the public.
By engaging schools and the local community, a natural play area will be created and a programme of events will take place to encourage the local community to become involved in heritage activities and a citizen science programme.
The Lough Erne Landscape Partnership (funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund) in partnership with the National Trust and the Shan Bullock Society were delighted to celebrate the works of Shan Bullock at a celebratory event “Remembering Shan Bullock” which took place on Saturday 5th October 2019 at Crom Estate.
Shan Bullock, was born on Inisherk Island within the Crom Estate in 1865, before moving to Killynick House, Teemore where the Bullock family still reside. The loughshore and its people were part of Shan’s upbringing and in later life would be the subject of his many novels. Shan’s books reflect his memories of life living on the island and also of life in 19th Century Fermanagh.
