Built on the site of an ancient keeill, the chapel of St John was first referred to in 1557, but was likely to have been built before this date. In 1847 the chapel was demolished and in 1849 this beautiful building was constructed from local granite and marble.

Cross Vein Mine Foxdale, popularly known as Snuff the Wind

This mine was worked circa 1832 to 1881 by the Isle of Man Mining Company, usually in conjunction with the more extensive Beckwith Mine situated 2/3 of a mile West and it exploited part of a vein of lead ore which was temporarily very productive . There were two shafts approximately 240’ apart, the engine shaft and the Whim shaft – So called because it was originally worked with a horse gin or whim.

St. Michael’s Church – Kirk Michael

This church was built in 1835 (the former church dated from the 12th century) The building is of plain cruciform design and is built in brown stone with a large square tower.

There are five Bishops buried in the graveyard, Bishops Wilson, Hildesley, Mason, Crigan and Duesbury.

I actually went into the graveyard to have a look at these graves and I kid you not I was chased out by two sheep, one of which had long horns.
