Description

A vintage style art print of sailing yachts off Magilligain Point, Derry/Londonderry.

Magilligan is a peninsula that lies in the northwest of County Londonderry, Northern Ireland, at the entrance to Lough Foyle, within Causeway Coast and Glens district.

Martello Tower, to the north of Magilligan Point near the lough, commenced construction in 1812, rather late in the British sequence, as the original plan for a fort at Magilligan point was impractical due to soft ground. A genuinely round tower mounting two 24 pounder guns, it has been restored but is normally locked. It was built at the same time as the more unusual double-gunned tower across the lough at Greencastle. It was not completed until 1817, two years after Napoleon, against whose invasion it was built to protect, had been exiled to St. Helena. The garrison stationed here never fired a shot at any enemy. During World War II the top of the tower was fitted out with a pillbox. Since the tower was built, deposits of sand have extended the peninsular by several hundred metres and the tower is now located a considerable distance from the sea.

Specification

PRINTS All prints produced with the highest quality long-life archive inks on 250g heavyweight paper and are supplied rolled in strong 7.5cm (3″) diameter postal tubes for reduced curl and safe transport. The pictures supplied suit standard frame sizes that are available in many furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea. The black outline is to show the edges of the print and to demonstrate what the print would look like in a frame. The finished prints do NOT have the James Kelly Art watermarks shown on the screen previews.

Shipping

I post pictures all over the world. So, if you have a loved one in far off places, enter their delivery address at checkout and I’ll happily ship to them directly. Prints are shipped rolled-up in strong, wide postal tubes, ready for framing. UK – Standard UK shipping usually takes around 1 - 3 days. International – Standard (from approximately $10) or Tracked and Signed (from approximately $15) typically takes 7 to 10 days to the USA. Standard 50x40cm pictures are kept in stock and usually dispatched within 24 hours (excluding weekends) - all other sizes are printed to order and usually take an extra 24 hours to dispatch. *** As I live out in the country, last postal and courier collection times are quite early, therefore orders placed after 10am will likely not be shipped until the following working day. I always do my best to ensure that orders are shipped within 1 or 2 working days.

Framing

I don't supply framed prints, but all my prints are in sizes to suit off-the-shelf frames as available from furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea, B&Q, etc. Picture frame size camparison
