Glen Dhoo book

Culture Vannin gave a grant to social historian Sarah Christian for her book about the people who once inhabited Glen Dhoo.

The book, entitled From Travail to Tranquility, explores the Glen Dhoo valley, which lies between Slieu Curn and Slieu Dhoo and is reached via a rough track alongside Ballaugh plantation, above Ravensdale Castle. There was once a group of ten buildings at the area at the top. In the book, Sarah Christian asks what happened to the people who used to live there and explores a range of theories.

Profits from the sale of From Travail to Tranquility go to Ballaugh Heritage Trust, whose latest project is to conserve the last remaining goods shed on the defunct Manx Northern Railway.
