Baldwin Bluebell Walk

Type:Walking Route

Baldwin Bluebell Walk

About

Distance: 2.5 miles 

Grading: Leisurely

Terrain: Surfaced

Start the Bluebell Walk at St Luke's Church which sits in the centre of the Manx countryside in the Baldwin Valley and is possibly the most isolated church but also in one of the most perfect settings on the island. 

From its position high on the hill, it is believed to be the highest standing church on the island and from St Luke's door, you can see spectacular views over Baldwin Valley across the Manx countryside and on a clear day, you can even see as far as the Isle of Anglesey in the distance.

At the fork in the road, follow the road on the left up to the Killabane stone circle which is believed to be the ancient site of the Manx parliament Tynwald from the 15th century. It is one of four historically recorded assembly sites on the Island and the earliest reference to this site can be found in the Statue Books, which refers to a court held in 1428. 

Conitnue along the path as it takes you up alongside the River Glass to the bluebells at the Injebreck Reservoir, then back through the West Baldwin Plantation. On days when the water is low at the reservoir, you might also see the site of an old village that was built here before the reservoir was constructed.
