The December walk will be on Tuesday 7th December.
AGNEASH and LAXEY: This is an undulating walk of around 5 miles. Meet at the car park in 'Ham and Egg Terrace' in Laxey (SC432848) at 11am. We start off uphill along a country lane with some steep stretches to Agneash, taken at a leisurely pace, then a mix of paths and tracks take us up to a height of around 750 feet above sea level, giving us fine views ranging from the summit of Snaefell to the sea. We shall stop for lunch before dropping down towards Old Laxey, again by a mix of tracks and minor roads, stopping to visit King Orry's Grave. From here we take a path down to the riverside by the woollen mill shop then follow the river up to the car park, passing the smaller Lady Evelyn waterwheel on the way. As there are some muddy paths and a short steep descent, boots and walking poles are recommended. There are two or three stiles along the top section, none of which is difficult. Bring a packed lunch and expect to finish around 2.15pm.

Whilst numbers are not limited it will be useful for me to know how many to expect at the start so please let me know if you are likely to be coming with us. My email address is ianawilsonu3a@gmail.com and my telephone number is 07401255912.

One final message is that members or guests on taster sessions participating in walks do so at their own risk and the IOM U3A and walk leaders/organisers can bear no responsibility for accidents. We do not commit to having any qualified First Aider in the group.

U3a Walk in Ballaglass Glen, Port Cornaa & Cashtal Yn Ard

On Tuesday 7th September, we – 12 of us including a couple of UK u3a members over here on holiday - were very fortunate with the weather for our walk – wall-to-wall glorious sunshine. This was a varied walk, beginning at the Ballaglass Glen car park, taking a path through the woods down to Port Cornaa where quite a few holiday-makers were enjoying being on the pebbly beach, skimming stones, and “wild” swimming in the calmest of seas. Then up through the Barony Estate and on up to Cashtal yn Ard where we had our picnic lunch amongst the impressive standing stones.

Altogether a very pleasant 5 mile summer walk led by Hazel
