Laxey & Lonan Heritage Trust

The Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust was formed in March 1987. Its main objective is "to do all such acts and things as may promote and assist the promoting, in the Isle of Man and elsewhere, knowledge relating to the history of Laxey and the history and archaeology of the mining industry in the Isle of Man and, in particular, the Great Laxey Mine in the Parish of Lonan and its associated structures". In doing so, the Trust has forged close working links with other organisations and groups such as Manx National Heritage, the Laxey Mines Research Group, Isle of Man Transport, Garff Commissioners and the other Heritage Trusts on the Island.

The Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust's Gift Shop and Information Centre on Mines Road is now closed and will reopen in March of 2018. The shop will then open daily from 10.00am to 4.00pm. A wide range of gifts, souvenirs, books and refreshments will be on sale.

Events are regularly held through out the year including guided walks in summer and illustrated talks during winter months. There are also social events such as the Great Laxey and Lonan Duck Race and a popular Annual Quiz.

The Trust operates a gift shop and information centre on Mines Road, which is open daily from Easter to the end of September.

We would be delighted if you would join the Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust and take an active role in promoting the history and heritage of Laxey and Lonan.
