Lamplugh and the Isle of Man[edit]

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.[1] 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.[4]
