In the 1930s, Port Erin ("Ireland's Port")was described in Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles as being a coastal village, lifeboat station and watering place, with a railway station, on Port Erin Bay, 15 and a half miles from Douglas. In earler days, Port Erin was a favoured spot for smuggling, but this was replaced by its 19th century popularity as the playground for the Lancashire mill owners and their employees. Port Erin remains a summer seaside resort of some significance, along with a flourishing Arts Centre and a Marine Biological Station established at the seaward end of the bay.
