Toome Waterways Heritage Centre & Café
We are delighted to announce the refurbishment of Toome Lockhouse on the Lower Bann Navigation. Waterways Ireland in partnership with local community group TIDAL and Lough Neagh Partnership, funded under Heritage Lottery Funding, have developed the old Lockhouse into a Waterways Heritage Centre and Café with an associated amenity area and carpark.
The Lockhouse provides a hub for the community as an attraction for tourists to the River Bann and Lough Neagh which is managed by TIDAL. A visit to the Heritage centre will gain you entre to the exhibition centre, showcasing archival material relating to the Lower Bann, Lough Neagh and their waterside communities as well as a café where you can sit back, relax and watch the waters of the Lower Bann flow by.
