PATRICK PARISH.

Which lies on the western shore of the island, in the Sheading of Glanfaba, extends six miles from north to south, by a mean breadth from east to west of three miles. The parish church stands in the northern part ofthe district, one mile and a half south of Peel. Patrick parish was connected with that of German till the year 1714, when a separation took place, and the present church was erected ; in the bishop is vested the patronage of the living, which is a vicarage. There is also a chapel of ease at Daulby. The district is mountainous, and (with the exception of the deep vales, which are fertile), totally unproductive to the agriculturist ; but the minerals that it embosoms amply compensate for the sterility of the surface. The principal mines are those of lead, situate at Foxdale, and on the west side of South Barrule; they are wrought by the Isle of Man Mining Company, who employ upwards of four hundred persons, and they produce about one hundred tons of ore per month, which is shipped at Peel and Douglas for the river Dee. The beautiful waterfall of Glenmoy (or Glenmoij) flowing on the west coast, three miles south from Peel, is visited by most strangers.

The Post Town for this parish is PEEL.
