Mayo Railway Heritage Survey

MAYO RAILWAY HERITAGE SURVEY

Rubicon carried out a documentary survey of the railways of County Mayo supplemented, through fieldwork, by a baseline built heritage survey of all disused sections of railway line. The project was undertaken on behalf of May County Council, and the fieldwork phase involved the recording of 506 sites. A database was constructed which included a written description of all recorded structures and features, a photographic record, location data and an appraisal of significance and condition, with recommendations for inclusion on the RPS or for urgent practical conservation works.
