Isle of Man Mines

Isle of Man Attractions - Mines


The history of the Isle of Man includes a number of mines located around the countryside.  Trains used to join all the mines although these have been taken out of use and the tracks are now long distance footpaths.


Laxey Mines are perhaps the most famous, and you can now retrace the steps the miners once took into the mouth of the mine when you visit Laxey - the most adventurous even go caving deep down within the mine.


If your interest is industrial archaeology and you'd like to find out more about mines and mining in the Isle of Man, the Manx Mines Research Group has a wealth of information.
