Siege Boom (Heritage Trail)

Below the Foyle Bridge, on the northern side, is the site of a boom or floating barrier constructed during the siege of 1689. It was broken by three ships-the 'Mountjoy,' 'Dartmouth,' and the 'Swallow' on the 29th July 1689 to bring relief to the besieged city and an end to the siege.
NB. As we do not have exact location information, this is a map of the local area.
