Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT) is the lead partner for the Drifting Apart project. In addition to developing and leading the project on behalf of partners, CCGHT is delivering Work Packages One and Two i.e Project Management and Communication Activities.

The Causeway Coast and Glens area includes some of the most geologically diverse landscapes on Earth. Over 650 million years of geological history are recorded in the rocks, landforms and landscapes along 100 miles of dramatic coastline from City of Derry Airport in County Londonderry to the town of Carrickfergus in County Antrim. From pre-Cambrian rocks at Murlough Bay to present day peat formation on the Antrim Plateau, much of Earth’s geological history can be interpreted in the landscape. The variety of rocks, landforms and landscapes within the Causeway Coast and Glens provide evidence that continents and oceans have moved and continue move around the surface of our planet.

CCGHT’s area include three designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Binevenagh, Causeway Coast, Antrim Coast and Glens) and one World Heritage Site (the Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast).
