Londonderry 400 - Plantation of the walled city

Ulster-Scots Community Network

In 2013 Londonderry celebrates the 400th anniversary of the Charter granted in 1613 by James VI (of Scots) and I (of England). In the charter it said ‘that the said city or town of Derry, for ever hereafter be and shall be named and called the city of Londonderry’ to mark forever the association between Derry and the City of London which had ‘undertaken’ the Plantation of both the City and the renamed county. To celebrate the anniversary of the grant of Londonderry’s most significant Charter 400 years ago, Londonderry will be the UK City of Culture in 2013. This publication is intended as a contribution to those celebrations.
