Foxdale  the Isle of Man


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Foxdale like this:

FOXDALE, a place 5 miles SSE of Peel, in the Isle of Man. It has a post office under Douglas, Isle of Man. Extensive mines are here, in northern spurs of the Barrule slate mountains. They are from 240 to 300 feet deep; and they produce, per month, from 250 to 300 tons of lead ore, containing from 15 to 20 oz. of silver per ton.
