It’s a view like this that makes me realise how fortunate I am to live on the beautiful Isle of Man.

This image was taken from Brandywell looking towards Snaefell Mountain.

The long abandoned farmhouse of Tholt y Will Farm which is high up in the hills overlooking the Sulby Valley with the traditional Hawthorn tree situated near to the front entrance which was reportedly planted to ward off evil.

I am led to believe that this farmhouse may have also been called “Yn Alt” which translates from Gaelic Manx to “the mountain stream”

This Tholtan in located in such a beautiful, open and isolated area of our Island and I often wonder what life was like back then for the families that lived there.

During the 1950s Mr G. B. Gardner was the owner of a fine collection of occult items. He converted the outer buildings adjoining this three-storey windmill in Arbory Road into a museum of witchcraft and magic.

This fine mill is now in private ownership.

A Manx Poppy wreath at Jurby Church War Memorial this morning.

Approximately 1,000 Manxmen were at the Battle of the Somme. Sadly at least 120 were killed and 100’s more were wounded or captured.

Lest we forget.

In our troubled World how lucky are we to have such lovely untouched hills and glens.

This image was taken from a Hill Fort (Round House) on Ballaugh Mountain called Cashtal Lajer and looking towards the green hills of Ballaugh Glen and Druidale.

I just loved the olde world look of this image which is at the Back Marina Road or the rear of the Gaiety Theatre in Douglas.

Reminds me of an old Downtown in New York type shot but in our beloved back streets of Douglas.
