Laxey Station – Agneash – King Orry’s Grave – Laxey harbour – Laxey Station

8 km/5 miles. Height gained 260 m/853 feet. About 3.5 hours walking

Description: Explore the rich mining and farming landscape on country roads and footpaths around Laxey in the east of the Island with views to the hills and over Laxey Bay.

We take the 10:10 Manx Electric Railway (booked) from Derby Castle, Douglas to Laxey and then walk by the river past the Great Laxey Wheel (the largest working waterwheel in the world) and industrial archaeology of lead and zinc mining. The steep country road leads to Agneash village and more mining heritage and then over open fields and country tracks to the two Neolithic chambered tombs of King Orry’s Grave. We then walk down to Laxey Harbour and Laxey Bay and up by the river back to Laxey Station. Return to Douglas by bus (not booked) or Manx Electric Railway (not booked). Options for return transport to be provided when timetables are confirmed.

What we may see: Industrial archaeology, mining heritage, Neolithic chambered tombs, woodland wildlife, inland and coastal views.
