Laxey & Snaefell Tour

The laxey & snaefell

Walking Tour

Tour Highlights:

  • Walk the Laxey valley to the Snaefell Mines
  • Enjoy the scenery of Snaefell summit
  • Visit Agneash Methodist Chapel and discover the history of the mines

Tour Description:

The trail starts in the small village of Agneash which lies just north of the famous Laxey Wheel. Here we spend some time in the picturesque Methodist Chapel and learn about working life in the mines and the history of the surrounding area.

We then follow the trail out to the ruins of the Snaefell Mines, a route that the miners would have taken dating back many years ago. As we walk, enjoy the fabulous views of Snaefell summit in the foreground.

The trail offers fantastic views of the Laxey Valley and beyond and you can view the trams running up the opposite side of the valley on their way to Snaefell Summit.

At the site of the old mine, a commemorative plaque can be observed recognising the lives of the 20 miners who lost their lives in 1897, following a mining disaster.

From here we make the steep climb up towards Clagh Ouyr to join the adjacent public footpath which takes us back down towards Agneash. On a clear day the coast of Cumbria is visible on the horizon. Before arriving back at the drop off point we pass through some of the ruins of the old Laxey Mines.

On our return to the chapel you can relax with a hot drinks and biscuit.

The trail is initially made up from a stony greenway so care needs to be taken on the path. Once we leave the mines the trail is mostly grassy footpath and gravel greenway. However, small sections of the trail maybe boggy in poor weather so appropriate footwear is required.

Fridays 10:00 AM - 14:00 PM
