Guided ‘round’ walk of Knockaloe

with Alison Jones from the Charity

During the First World War, Knockaloe Farm on the west coast of the Isle of Man became an internment camp, home to almost 25,000 ‘enemy aliens’. Starting in Patrick, the walk follows the main drive of Knockaloe and to the fields beyond, telling the story of the camp and its inhabitants along the way. From here we shall link up with the coastal path, stopping for lunch at the picnic area with incredible views along the beautiful west coast of the Island, before following the coastal path past Corrin’s Tower into Peel, where we turn back inland following part of the old Knockaloe branch railway line, before returning back to Patrick. Bring a picnic lunch (& good walking boots & wet weather clothing as appropriate).
