New signs have been unveiled at Langness to help visitors learn more about the popular beauty spot.

The new signs aim to enhance visitors’ enjoyment and understanding of the peninsula and were unveiled by Minister for Environment, Food and Agriculture Richard Ronan MHK and DEFA member David Cretney MLC.

Langness is the most important Manx location for wintering and migrant waders and wildfowl and is important for ducks and wading birds. It also has a variety of vegetation and plant life.

A large area from Hango Hill, taking in Castletown Golf Links, is an Area of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI) and the signs feature QR (quick response) codes, enabling users of smart devices to access the government website to learn more about Langness and the island’s 20 other ASSI sites.

Mr Ronan said: ‘We hope the signs will increase enjoyment and promote the importance and sensitivity of the peninsula.’
