Situated within Crawfordsburn Country Park, on the headland to the east stands a wartime relic, Grey Point Fort, a most interesting and unusual visitor attraction with great surrounding views.
This gun site was built to protect the mouth of the Belfast Lough from enemy invasion and now houses a little military museum. Centrepiece is a 12ft by six inch diameter naval gun which was installed in 1992. It is nearly a century old and was brought from Spike Island in Cork Harbour which also had a defensive fort. Grey Points two guns were sold for scrap in 1957 after the disbanding of the coastal artillery.
Crawfordsburn Country Park is situated on the southern shores of Belfast Lough. It is full of variety, featuring 3.5.km of coastline, often rugged and rocky, the two best beaches in the Belfast area, a deep wooded glen with an impressive waterfall at its head, a pond and wildflower meadows with excellent views over the Lough.
Excellent website. My Grandfather was a RGA instructor on the site during WW1.
East Antrim Old Vehicle ClubVery nice day on Sunday 22nd August. Thanks for guided tour for my club.Robert
Visited in 2004. The guide (unfortunately I don't remember his name) was very informative. I left Belfast in 1958 and just discovered Grey Point by chance on my trip back in 2004
