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. 

Check our Facebook page for details of all of our events.

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.
