Find out more on how K Rend were involved in the huge restoration project.

Northern Ireland boosts many spectacular tourist attractions - The Giants Causeway, Antrim Coastal Road, The Mourne mountains, Slieve Gullion and in recent years the Game of Thrones tour.

Adding to the long list of things to see and do in Northern Ireland is the Gobbins, a dramatic cliff face walk in Co. Antrim. Designed and built over a century ago, the pathway will reopen to the public, after 60 years on Wednesday 19th August. Situated 20 miles north of Belfast The Gobbins is sure to be a top hit.

The restoration project took place following a post-war decline of the 1.5 mile walkway which was closed to the public in 1950. Restoring the path involved replacing bridges, hand rails and constructing a new visitors centre. The iconic tubular bridge has been replaced with an almost identical replica, a great feet in engineering.

We were delighted to be involved in the huge £7.5m project, supplying 400 tonne of Red Quarry Stone to the stunning attraction to be used in pathways surrounding the main attraction. For more information on the project, CLICK HERE.
