The events over the ManxCacheFest week will be many and varied, and this particular event aims to introduce everyone to our Manx history and language.
Tynwald Hill, which is located in St Johns, plays host to an open air meeting of the Island’s parliament, Tynwald, once a year. The hill, which measures around 72 feet high, is thought to be made from piles of stones bonded together with soil from all of the Island’s 17 ancient parishes. It is believed that the open air ceremony, which takes place on July 5th, was established by Norse Viking settlers over a thousand years ago, with the hill thought to have been built in the 13th century.
Come along on Sunday 16th August 2015 between 10:00 a.m. and noon to learn a little of the Manx language which may come in useful when geocaching on the Isle of Man.
Find us on the 'Fair field' at the back of Tynwald Hill. There is plenty of off-road parking at the given parking co-ords.
