Ballaugh Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Isle of Man...








A sleepy village on the north western coast, Ballaugh is best known for its hump-backed bridge. Apparently it has proved the downfall for some TT riders, though there is a pub here to help them drown their sorrows. The village’s name possibly derives from Bal-ny-laghney (Homestead of the Curragh) or Bal-laff (The place of Our Lady).

Just 10 miles from bustling Ramsey, its oldest 18th century church, St Mary’s, was rescued in the 19th century when it was re-roofed and altered. More recently it has featured in films.
