Overview

'Cedars Walking Group is based at the Jethro Centre Lurgan and is aimed exclusively at walkers over the age of 50. We have more than 100 members and regularly have 50 or 60 members on our walks which are led by trained and experienced walk group leaders ... We are limited in the number of members we can accept because of the practicalities of walking with larger groups - parking, group management and availability of leaders. There is usually a waiting list at the start of the new season but applicants who are unsuccessful at the September intake will be reconsidered for membership in January the following year. Don't expect to get a place on first application but don't let that deter you from walking - it's a great way to keep healthy.'

Overview

'In 1958, Forest Service acquired Gosford Demesne. Prior to this, the Earls of Gosford owned the estate for centuries. They were descendants of the Acheson family who established woodland, parkland and edifices on the estate. Gosford Forest Park offers visitors paths and trails to see these historical features, and the mix of conifer and broadleaf woodlands, with its diverse flora and fauna.' ALERT 'Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council is taking over the management of Gosford Forest Park on 1st January 2019. We look forward to meeting our customers, providing excellent services and developing a further range of activities in the Forest Park.'

Overview

'A journey of discovery following the heritage buildings of Lurgan. In all parts of the town are to be found many impressive examples erected by talented local builders and craftsmen. They have an appeal deeper than can be conveyed by mere terms of brick, stone and plaster. Discover the treasure of our past by taking a fresh look at the rich architectural legacy left by previous generations.'

Alert The 'Discover Craigavon' Website originally cited here seems no longer. So I have referenced Lurgan Park rather than the Lurgan Town Trail.
