National Trust Proposes New Text For Controversial Signs At Popular Heritage Site

At a public drop-in session last week at the Causeway Hotel, The National Trust proposed new text for controversial signs at the popular heritage site.

Last year the Trust had been slammed for erecting “misleading” signs at the Giant’s Causeway in order to charge visitors to the attraction. The signs, which first appeared on a public pathway to the Unesco World Heritage Site in early 2017, informed users of the path along the iconic coastline that they are accessing the route “with the permission of the National Trust”.

The National Trust has acknowledged local peoples anger.

If approved following local consultation the signage will read: ‘Welcome to the Giant’s Causeway. We need your help to protect its beauty and wildlife, and so we might ask you to avoid some areas.’
