I’ve had a very loose ongoing project about The Entries rattling around in my head for years and wrote briefly about Pottinger’s Entry in an earlier post. The Entries or The Belfast Entries mostly run between High Street and Ann Street and date back to around 1630. In those days they led to the waterfront as what is now High Street was then the Farset river.

The problem I’ve always had with The Entries is that its challenging to make an interesting photograph. Pottinger’s Entry is the most photogenic – there is the Morning Star Victorian pub and arches at each end. The others are not so interesting and some show signs of neglect.
