Route outline (key)
B58 Old Laxey - Laxey

The B58 is a narrow and windy route which follows the river through Laxey. It starts at a TOTSO with the B1 at the north end of Old Laxey Bridge and heads west along Glen Road on the north bank of the river. There are lots of newer houses filling in the gaps between the older buildings, and as the road winds away from the riverbank, buildings line both sides of the road. The route then briefly passes between playing fields, nominally the boundary between Old Laxey (around the harbour) and Laxey (around the mines). Before long, the road is back on the riverbank, and then crosses the Laxey River to follow the Glen Roy River instead. At a crossroads, Glen Road becomes Church Hill, and starts to climb away from the river, passing under the Glen Roy Viaduct, carrying the Isle of Man Electric Railway, and ends soon after amongst the shops on the A2.

History

As originally numbered in the 1920's, this route appears to have formed part of the B20. It had been renumbered as the B58 by 1963.
