  A Manx A-B-C-Dery
An Alphabetical Tour
of the Isle of Man
 
  Visitors are often surprised by how much there is to see on the Isle of Man, so how do they choose where to go? This book makes it simpler.  
  Twenty-six attractions, one for each
letter of the alphabet. Some are
well-known, some are not, but all
are worth a look. So:

A… is for Albert’s Tower.
B… is for Bride bunkers.
C… is for Corrin’s Tower.

And so on.
 
  For example, did you know that Orrisdale was once called Four Towns but no one seems to know why? Or that Rushen Abbey used to be famous for its cream teas? Or that the Ayres is home to one of only two ecosystems of the kind in Europe?
  And there’s a bonus!

Numbers one to ten get a look
in as well...
