View of the village of Crumlin in County Antrim, Ireland. The village takes its name from the Irish word Cruimghlinn which means ‘Crooked Glen’; the area was once a forest, thick with oak trees. The village is situated on the Crumlin River, and in the mid 18th century flour mills were built along its banks which encouraged the growth of wheat in the area. In the 19th century woollen mills were built and the area became known for the production of Lough Neagh Tweeds.
