Sheading of Middle

Middle (Manx: Medall) is one of six sheadings in the Isle of Man and consists of the parishes of Braddan, Marown and Santon or Santan. It lies to the east of the island. Historically it consisted of Braddan, Santan and Onchan. (The map on the right shows Braddan, Marown, Santan and Onchan all in red, as well as Douglas which has its own Keys constituencies.)

Keys constituency[edit]

It is also a House of Keys constituency. Originally, in the 19th century, the constituency included the whole of the sheading (excluding Douglas), and elected 3 members; in the more recent period up to 2011 it elected one MHK, but the constituency excluded Santan, which was in the Malew & Santon constituency. In 2016 the constituency included Santan, and elected two MHKs.
