Living in the Isle of Man
The Isle of Man is a small island located in the Irish Sea. At its nearest point it is 54 miles (94kms) from the UK and 66 miles (107kms) from Ireland. The island itself is only 221 square miles (572 sq.km) and is about 30 miles (48km) long and 10 miles (16km) wide. Needless to say the population is not huge and is on average around 86,000 people with 40% of the island uninhabited. The Isle of Man was awarded status as a UNESCO world biosphere region in 2016 and is proud to have the ‘freshest air in Britain'.
