Welcome to beach road

Beach Road Nature Reserve is located in the seaside town of Whitehead, Co.Antrim in Northern Ireland.

Beach Road Nature Reserve is owned and managed by Carrickfergus Borough Council. Recently the local community group 'Brighter Whitehead' received a grant from Better Belfast to make substantial environmental improvements to the reserve.

We hope you enjoy our new website, and would welcome your comments and contributions to help keep the site upto date. Work has already begun, and you can keep upto date with this exciting project by joining our mailing list or coming back to see us here soon.
