Douglas Bay

Description: Douglas Bay is on the east coast of the Isle of Man (NGR 23900 47500). Brown's Popular Guide to the Isle of Man of 1884 says, "What a magnificent bay is this of Douglas! How deep the azure which rests upon its waters. Few scenes can be more impressive than that presented to the stranger on his arrival by steamer on a clear summer's eve, fleeing from the turmoil of London or Liverpool, or the din of Birmingham, or Manchester, or Leeds. The shape of the Bay he will observe to be that presented by the concave arc of the moon when three days old." (p.17)
