Warren View, Hillsborough Road, Lisburn, c. 1960s (ILC&LM Collection)

Thank you to everyone who contacted us about an unknown terrace we posted on our Virtual Museum. With your help, we can identify the terrace as ‘Warren View’. It was built in the late nineteenth century on the Hillsborough Road (sometimes referred to as the Dublin Road), just north of Moore’s Bridge, Lisburn. The terrace consisted of eight dwelling houses with land at the back bordering the River Lagan.

Ordnance Survey map, fourth edition (1905-57), showing the location of the terrace ‘Warren View’ on the right side of the Hillsborough Road heading north, just above Moore’s Bridge (‘The New Bridge’).

It was located in the south east of the townland of Old Warren from which the terrace gets part of its name. The other part of the name, ‘View’, may be a reference to the terrace’s location opposite or in view of a gentry house called ‘Warren Cottage’.

As you can see from the photo, the terrace had become run down by the 1960s and was demolished later in the century.

If your family lived here or if you have any stories about the terrace, we would love to hear from you. Contact us.
