Binders Cove
« on: March 12, 2011 »

Has anyone been to the Binders Cove near Finnis/Dromara it`s a 30m underground passageway dating back to the Viking raids in the 9th Century. http://www.bbc.co.uk/northernireland/yourplaceandmine/down/A1956017.shtml          I took the youth club up to it tonight, You can find it on the back of the new Mournes Activity Map at Grid Ref J 2740 4415, It`s worth a visit !

From this wee blurb it apears its open all the time.

"Although souterrains are fairly common, there are very few to which the public has free access. This one is very much open to the public and is well worth a visit. It has one added feature that certainly doesn't date from the 9th century and that is; Solar powered lighting! Yes it's true... there's a large solar panel just outside the entrance which constantly charges a large bank of batteries, thus providing the visitor with readily available light whenever it's needed. A high-tech (and very 'green') solution to an ancient problem"

Overnighter anyone?

You can tell I didn't really read the text, just looked at the pictures.
