Isle of Man - Castletown
Castletown is a town geographically within the Malew parish of
the Isle of Man but administered separately. Lying at the south of
the island, it is the former Manx capital until 1869. The centre of
town is dominated by Castle Rushen, a well-preserved castle.
Castletown is the former capital of the Isle of Man and site of
Tynwald and can trace its roots back to 1090. The town has narrow
streets and small fishing cottages. Fishing boats still continue to
go out to fish from the harbour. Commercial traffic to the port
ended in the 1970s, although there has been an ongoing expansion of
finance and industrial businesses in the area. The first telephones
appeared in Castletown in 1901.
town lies on the northwest side of Castletown Bay. The opposite
shore of the bay is the west coast of the distinctively-shaped
Langness Peninsula and the hamlet of Derbyhaven.
