Lagan Island.

I took these shots a few weeks ago on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning. Lagan Island is the home of the “city”council as well as a conference and arts centre, right on the banks of the River Lagan, and just downstream from the Union bridge.

From this shot on the bridge you can see Castle gardens in the distance where a few of my recent posts have been based.

at this point of the river the water is calm before it reaches a weir just above the conference centre building, making it a great place on a morning like this to catch the reflection.

The conference centre has the river on one side and a restored canal on the other. The lock is still there to see and was known as Hanna’s lock. It would have been a busy water way in the 19th century but closed in the mid 20th century.
