Rushen Parish Commissioners have produced a booklet giving interesting information about the Meayll peninsula and The Sound, together with a walkers’ guide for the area.
John Rimington, who was a Members of Rushen Parish Commissioners for some years, compiled this booklet with the help of people living in the area who had knowledge of the great many interesting and historical aspects to be found along with the assistance of the staff at the Manx Museum and the Centre for Manx Studies.
The Meayll Peninsula is rich in history – from the Neolithic Chambered Tomb (the Stone Circle) through to the radar installations of World War 2. Items about Cregneash Village, Glen Chass Mines, the Quarries, Shipwrecks in The Sound, Folklore and many other interesting stories can be found in the booklet.
There is also information on the various walks which can be taken:
- A walk around Meayll Hill
- Port Erin to The Sound
- Cronk-nyArrey to Burroo Ned
- Port St Mary to The Chasms
These booklets are being sold at £4 each. All the money raised is for the Commissioners’ charitable trust – The Thousla Cross Trust. This Trust was set up to help young people and community organisations in the Parish of Rushen .
