Ronaldsway Mill

Period: Modern

NGR Easting: 229040

NGR Northing: 468270

Description: Modern watermill and associated water management.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1868 indicated that a waterwheel was incorporated within the farm buildings at Ronaldsway farm.

The mill was powered by water supplied by a 400m leat leading from a millpond located to the north-west. The tail race led under the road and into the sea which is immedately to the east of the farm complex.

Part of the farm complex, including the mill, is now demolished and the remaining buildings have been converted for other uses. The leat and dam have been infilled and now lie within the Isle of Man Airport estate.
