Ballaugh is a parish in the Isle of Man.ParishBallaugh is a mainly agricultural district on the north-western coast of the island. The parish is one of three divisions of the sheading of Michael. The other two are Jurby and Michael District. Ballaugh runs for some 3mi along the north-west coastline of the island. The average breadth of the parish is about 3mi and it covers an area of around 9sqmi. The south-east corner is hilly and the remainder is low, including part of the marshy depression of the Curraghs. The only village in the parish is Ballaugh.The current Captain of the Parish is Charles Edgar Cowin, who has held the post since 1993. The local authority is Ballaugh Parish Commissioners.DemographicsThe Isle of Man census 2006 lists the population of the parish as 1,042, an increase from the population of 868 in 2001.HistoryThere are in Ballaugh a number of sites of historical interest. There is a heritage group who hold regular meetings and arrange walks around the area. Research into the social history of the area, in particular the isolated Glen Dhoo, is being carried out. The name 'Ballaugh' derives from the Manx "Balley-ny-Loghey" or "the place of the lake". The Ballaugh Curraghs is all that remains of this lake. The lake, which measured up to a mile in length, was drained by the excavation about 300 years ago of the silted-up Lhen trench which, during the ice-age, is believed to have been a melt-water channel flowing north to south from the melting ice front.Curraghs Wildlife Park and Ballaugh CurraghOne mile east of the village is Curraghs Wildlife Park, which is run by the Isle of Man Government's Department of Tourism and Leisure and is a haven for all sorts of wetland wildlife. Most of the park is laid out in geographical sections, representing different continents of the world and the animals that can be found there. The central part of the park has a different format and contains specific animal exhibits and visitor attractions.
