  • This crossing was spiked in 1956-57.

  • This crossing was dug up by the British Army right from the border up to the main road (Upper Darkley Road) on the northern side.

  • The crossing was refilled a number of times.

  • The IRA placed a landmine on this crossing after it had been refilled, the locals did not want this as it was drawing attention to their crossing, and they just wanted to be able to cross back and forth to gain access to their land on the other side.
