Castletown Past and Present
Home to probably the most complete mediaeval castle in Europe, Castletown today belies its history as a stronghold, former island capital and bustling port. There are surprises too. Castletown was once home to a world famous museum of magic and witchcraft. A local school is renowned for annually setting the world’s most difficult quiz. Each year, the quiet town hosts the World Tin Bath Championship.
Much has changed, of course, but, as the photographs in this book show, it’s often astonishing just how much has remained the same.
