LOCATION 33 | Derrie Danders: A Guide to the Quayside and North City
You're approaching Asylum Road. Carefully cross over and continue along the Northland Road.
On the right is the entrance to a development of apartments called Clarendon Manor. In the past this had been the location of the Londonderry Infirmary, which was the main hospital in the city prior to the modern Altnagelvin Hospital being opened in 1959.
If you look ahead, you will see the spire of large church. That's St Eugene's Roman Catholic Cathedral and is the mother church for the Roman Catholic diocese of Derry. It was originally opened in 1849.
Keep walking until you reach the crossing point at the top of Clarendon Road.
