Laxey 2012 – ten years on

Laxey is the second  place on the Island to be revisited to examine changes over the last decade.

Following on from Peel 2011: Ten years on, we’re delighted to announce we have the go-ahead to give the “ten years on” treatment to the village of Laxey in 2022.

Once again we are grateful to Culture Vannin and Garff Commissioners who will be financing the project as they did ten years ago under their former organisations of Manx Heritage Foundation and Laxey Commissioners. We celebrate their foresight in contributing to the recording of social and economic change in local commercial activity, which will be appreciated for generations to come.

There were over 60 businesses photographed 10 years ago and we are looking forward to seeing the changes, and also photographing some of the same people as last time.

We are currently planning the fieldwork and will be posting the results here later in the year.
