Painting No. 138
Castletown Harbour is a fascinating small haven nowadays for a few local boats, but it was built in the 1820s for much greater things. Nearby Castlehill Quarry had just started to produce world class flagstones, and these were shipped from the harbour to all parts of the globe. Peak production was reached in 1902, when 35,363 tonnes of flagstone were produced, worth £23,239, but then concrete became more widespread for paving stones and by the 1920s the Castletown quarries had fallen silent. Memories of the industry can still be seen, however, in the beautiful stone-work of the harbour and Castletown village nearby, and there is now a Heritage Centre and Trail which are well worth a visit.
