“—and the Laxey River runs down to the sea.”

A guided walk by Pat Newton, Isle of Man Natural History and Antiquarian Society. Residents of Laxey Glen made full use of the power of the Laxey River and its tributaries for a wide variety of industries which existed both before, during and after the heyday of the mining village. Our walk will take us along the banks of the river viewing the many existing and former “manufacturing” localities. Please wear walking boots as some paths may be muddy. This walk is specifically not about the mining industry and therefore does not include the Laxey Wheel or Laxey Village Gardens (ie the washing floors)
Time: 2pm Venue: Meet at entrance to Laxey Glen Gardens – by the plaque to the
Williamson family. Parking available in Laxey Glen Gardens. Free
