Tynwald Day July 1983
The Tynwald is the ancient “parliament” of the Island and dates back over 1,000 years. The modern Tynwald is a simple, but formal, affair with the famous hill linking to St. John’s Chapel. Laws are proclaimed on the Old Midsummer’s Day, 5th July. Tradition says that the hill, of four levels, is made from soil drawn from each of the ancient island parishes and the Manx name for the hill is Cronk Keeilleoin (Hill of St. John’s Chapel)
