Rathmelton is a very picturesque Heritage Town at the mouth of the River Lennon where it enters a bay on Lough Swilly. Lovely riverside walks, an ancient stone bridge and handsome houses will encourage you to stop. It is a planned village of 17th century origins. Reverend Francis Makemie, the founder of the first Presbyterian church in Virginia U.S.A., preached in the old Meeting House in the village. Now restored, it contains a library and a genealogical centre.
