Forthcoming Events

Saturday 28 January 2017
Andrew Sidebottom and Shaun Gelling:  Managing Our Landscape and Amenity
Andrew Sidebottom, Director of Forestry, Amenity and Lands, and Shaun Gelling, Ranger, both from DEFA, will identify some of the work that is undertaken to help maintain a sustainable landscape and how we can help our landscape to sustain our environment, our community and our economy. Their talk will touch on both practical and strategic measures which the Department has been working on.

Saturday 25 February
Andrew Johnson:  The Old Ways are the Best
Andrew Johnson, Manx National Heritage Curator: Field Archaeology/Inspector of Ancient Monuments knows that roads, tracks and paths are a significant part of the Manx landscape. By studying these networks, understanding our historical laws relating to rights of way and observing the physical nature of these old routes to the hills, the shore and to church, we may understand much about how our ancestors used and moved through our island in the past.
 
ALL LECTURES ARE HELD IN THE MANX MUSEUM, DOUGLAS AT 2.30 P.M. FOLLOWED BY TEA (AGM 25 MARCH 2017 at 2.00pm)
