Foxdale, or Foxall as it was known, was a very busy mining area. Having around 450 miners producing 3,500 tons of lead and 100,000 ounces of silver every year. The workers would have travelled from far and wide to seek work, travelling from Glen Maye, Ronague, Marown and even as far as Douglas and Peel. To accommodate for all of the workers there were as many as seven shops in the Village.

The Victoria Clock at Foxdale was erected for the mining company in 1901, the clock being made by Potts of Leeds. The prosperity of the Foxdale mines inevitably led to a large increase in the number of school-age children and an 1872 survey counted over 200 pupils in the area. Since then a new school has been built.

In Foxdale there used to be an Inn, this was the Dingle Nook, and this is still in the Village. People used to call it The BalticĀ because it was always painted white like an Iceberg. When the Foxdale Hotel transpired the name Baltic followed the new Public Home. As you can see from the image on the right the Foxdale Hotel had 6 Bedrooms, Bar Lounge, Dining Room and a Smoke Room as well as bus stops for Railway Station.
