Welcome to Derrys Walls

This site is dedicated to the walls that surround the ancient and historic city of Derry built in the early 17th century.
spaceDerry’s Walls, the most visible of the city’s structures, dominate its skyline and are a constant reminder of a rich but divisive history. Much of the original structure has stood for almost four centuries and witnessed events where military encounters were won and lost but where psychological victories are still being sought. Among the triumphs was the successful with-standing of three sieges, the consequences of which reverberate down the decades to the present day.
spaceThis site contains a wealth of images including maps, illustrations and modern photographs together with explanatory text.
