Lamplugh and the Isle of Man

Working between 1892 and 1897, Lamplugh made the first official geological map of the Isle of Man under the auspices of the British Geological Survey. His original observations and field maps are kept at the British Geological Survey in Edinburgh. Hand-painted 'clean' copies of his map sheets are housed at the Manx Museum on the Isle of Man.
