Milford, on the banks of the historic Callan River and in the shadows of Armagh’s two great Cathedrals, derives its name from the fact it was once a flourishing mill village, built by the McCrum family and this unique walk brings you around some of these historic sites. The walk begins at the ‘Old School House’ opposite the ‘Institute’, both buildings of the late 19th Century. The walk then moves along the banks of the River Callan, and around the back of ‘Manor House’ once resided in by the McCrum family. Tile walk continues onto the Monaghan Road – where you can view the Cathedrals overlooking the Village – it then proceeds to Milford playing fields. The final part of the walk brings you past ‘McCrum Park’ where the world famous penalty kick was invented.
