Some more aerial shots
from the North Laxey Mines but with annotations. These are based
on information gleaned from Andrew Scarffe's excellent 'Great Laxey Mine'
book, the Laxey Mines Research Group website and a couple of other sources,
but are purely my take on how things were arranged and connected on the
surface, so are in no way to taken as accurate! (But I hope they are reasonable).
23rd & 24th July
St John's area.
In the hills above Ballaugh
and Sulby Glen, an area that was extensively farmed at one time with numerous
'Tholtans' or ruined farms dotting the hillsides. These days it's
mainly hill sheep farming with areas of commercial forestry and bracken
and gorse taking over the land. I've taken a particular look at the
tholtan of Killabrega above Sulby Glen, probably named after a Keeil dedicated
to Breaga, but there seems to be no trace of it now. It was inhabited
until the 1940s. DJI Phantom 4 Pro
