Church Brae, Dromore, Tyrone,

A ruined Church and graveyard overlooking the town of Dromore

This ruined church is situated on a rocky promontory on the outskirts of Dromore. The ruined church is substantial. It was probably built in the early seventeenth century. It consists of a rectangular nave 20m x 7.5m with a 7m2 transept projecting from the middle of the south wall. A number of architectural details survive including several windows. The building is surrounded by a disused graveyard. At the base of the promontory below the church is a spring, known locally as the “Eye Well”, which is believed to have curative powers.
