Maghera Roots

This exciting and original project will focus on farming in the Maghera area from the 1940s to the 1960s – a time which saw the changeover from the horse to the tractor and the end of farming traditions which had endured for centuries.

Over the coming months we as a society have gathering information, stories, memories, documents and photographs which tie in with the project.

‘Maghera Roots’ is as much about the town as the countryside around it as the links between the farming community and those who live in Maghera were very close at that time.

The project has been made possible due to the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, for which we are very grateful.
