Island seeks UNESCO recognition

A bid is being made to get World Heritage status for two of the Isle of Man’s most iconic landmarks.

If it was granted, Tynwald Hill and the Laxey Wheel would be recognised as places of special cultural or physical significance.

To have the status conferred, the Manx sites must fulfil certain criteria, as laid down by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

There are 890 UNESCO World Heritage Sites located in 148 countries, and if either of the Manx monuments made the list they would join the likes of Uluru in the Australian Outback, the Acropolis in Athens and the Statue of Liberty in New York.

Under certain conditions, listed sites can obtain funds from the World Heritage Fund.
