Event description

Description

Friday 2 - Moderate

Crosby – Old St Runius – Glendarragh Mill – railway line – Douglas

10 km/6 miles. Height gained 80 m/262 feet. About 3.5 hours walking

Description: A gentler walk (apart from one hill!) on country roads and the old railway line in the eastern central valley of the Island.

We take the bus to Crosby (not booked) and follow a stretch of the Millennium Way south to Old St Runius church with its early crosses, 18th century building and Archibald Knox grave marker. After passing the model Victorian farm at Ellerslie and Glendarragh Mill we join the route of the old railway line back to Douglas for an easier low level walk through stations and cuttings. Our route then passes through the Nunnery Estate to bring us to Douglas quayside, harbour and Central Douglas on foot. Recommended outward transport times to be provided when timetables are confirmed.

What we may see: Rural wildlife and verges including areas of wetland. Railway and industrial heritage, medieval and Victorian heritage at the Nunnery and Douglas harbour.

What to expect: Partly on country roads and partly on reclaimed railway line.
