Shaw's Farm

‘Lester’s (Lyster’s) Dam’ is a well-known feature in our 5-km area but we had no idea that the site of ‘Shaw’s Farm’ was beside it until we discovered the wonderful photograph by Robert Welch (see attached) and noticed the reference in its caption to ‘Lyster’s Dam’.

The site is beside the information board at the Bladon Drive entrance to Lagan Valley Park. The board refers to Lyster’s (Lester’s) Dam, but makes no reference to ‘Shaw’s Farm’!
