London House – Parliament Street in Ramsey

I love the fine architecture of this building in Parliament Street in Ramsey, sometimes it really does pay to look up at some of our glorious buildings on the Island.

Manx Crosses and Slabs – Kirk Michael Church

I have to be honest and say that these old Manx Runic Stones and Crosses do fascinate me.

This rather strange stone (No. 110) is displayed in Kirk Michael Church and is a broken shaft of a cross slab, which in 1669 was turned upside down, reshaped and carved with a skull and cross bones. It shows remains of the double twist and ring design. On one edge part of an inscription reads, A.B. cut (these) runes.

Archibald Knox – Grave

This very famous Manx Grave in the New Kirk Braddan Cemetery is that of Manx Illustrator and designer Archibald Knox (1864 to 1933).

Archibald Knox was born in nearby Cronkbourne Village and he grew up being inspired by intricately carved patterns in Celtic Stones of Mann.

The beautiful wording on his gravestone reads “A humble servant of God in the ministry of the beautiful”

His work still lives on to this day in the form of the world famous Archibald Knox Jewellery.

Braddan New Cemetery

I went up to Braddan new Cemetery today to listen to local historian Mr Peter Kelly chat to a group of us about the Archibald Knox designed gravestones, and on the way up I couldn’t help capturing this image of the Chapel.

The Curraghs in Ballaugh

A walk through the Curraghs this afternoon and only spotted 2 Wallabies possibly due to the heavy rain last night and the Curragh being very, very wet.
