Dougie dips back into history thumbnailLimavady man Douglas Bartlett with his reprinted and updated book ‘An Illustrated History of Limavady and the Roe Valley’.

FOLLOWING on from the success of his book on the history of Limavady from early times up to the 1900s, local historian Dougie Bartlett has launched an up-dated and revised second edition. The book 'An Illustrated history of Limavady and the Roe Valley', covers the history of the local area including interesting sections on Eglinton, Ballykelly, Magilligan, Dungiven and Limavady itself.
Since Dougie published his first book in 2010, it has proved popular both locally and wider afield. Copies of the book have found their way to New Zealand, Australia, Canada and America, Norway, France, and Spain.
The historical book has become a reference point on the history of the area for tourists and local historians alike, especially as Dougie is Chairman of the Roe Valley Historical Society.
