A Bronze Age burial mound and Post-medieval summerhouse.

The site is also infamous as a place of execution, most notably of Manx martyr, Illiam Dhone (William Christian)

William Christian is the most iconic figure in Manx political history. As the Earl of Derby’s most trusted lieutenant, he was charged with the defence of the Isle of Man against Parliamentary forces. Yet, in 1651 he negotiated the surrender of the Island against the wishes of the Earl’s widow, in exchange for certain guarantees. Regarded as a traitor by the Derby family, after the restoration he was tried and executed. In recent years however he has been reconstructed as a Manx patriot by nationalist elements, and the site of his death at Hango Hill is now the location for an annual nationalist gathering.
