Work commences on 18 & 20 Upper English Street Armagh

Restoration work has commenced on 18 & 20 Upper English Street Armagh. Built in the early 19th Century the buildings have had various uses throughout this period mostly incorporating a mix of shops and accommodation. Business types have included a Boot and Shoe merchant, a Bookseller, Printer, Publisher (as seen in the Black and white image on this board) and a Cake Shop.

The project will involve complete conservation and restoration of these two derelict properties which when restored will include 2 retail units on ground floor and 9 units of residential accommodation occupying the Upper floors of both buildings.

This project is made possible with funding from Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council, private funding and National Lottery Heritage Fund Northern Ireland.
