What will you see?
World War II Flying Boat Base
At one time, Castle Archdale Country Park was in the front line of the Battle of the Atlantic. This base helped keep the Atlantic free of U-boats. The Heritage Trail was devised by the Fermanagh Flying Boat Association to give a brief idea of the extent of the park during the Second World War.
Originally intended for the servicing of Shetland Flying Boats, this dock built in 1945 is believed to be the only one of its type surviving in the world.
This roadway affectionately named the ‘Burma Road’ was cut through dense forest and gave access to isolated ammunition and pyro stores.
