Foxdale and Beyond

Standing on the Ballavar Road next to Archallagan Plantation in Foxdale and overlooking the buildings of the MSPCA in the centre of the image, South Barrule Plantation is top left, next to the Plantation is South Barrule Quarry, you can also just make out the heather starting to burst into colour on the upper hills.

How lucky are we to have such a wonderful countryside!

A bit of a breeze blowing up on Douglas Head this afternoon and I just couldn’t resist this one of the Manannan backing in to her Berth.

Coupled with the Gorgeous WW1 commemorative display of poppies on Douglas Head now in full bloom which is a total credit to Douglas Corporation Gardening Department for such a fantastic display up on Douglas Head.

Thorwald’s Cross (Andreas)

The transition in the Viking world of Pagan beliefs to the final embrace of Christianity is depicted on this stone. The Vikings brought pagan religion to shores already believing in Christianity and for a short time, both creeds co-existed. But eventually, Christianity won.

One side of this stone shows the Norse god Odin (recognised by the raven on his shoulder, and weaving his famous spear) being devoured by Fenris the wolf at the Battle of Ragnorok – the fight against evil and the end of the world for the Norse deities. The other side is filled with Christian symbolism – a figure with a book and a cross, by a fish and a defeated serpent.

This stone is not only a ‘page-turn’ from pagan to Christian beliefs, it also has that rarest of things – the name of the person who was responsible. Down one side, written in ancient Norse runes, is the inscription ‘Thorwald raised this cross’.

Old Kirk Lonan Church

This is one of my favourite churches on the Island.

This quaint little church is dedicated to St. Adamnan and is one of the oldest churches on the Island with the walls dating back to the 12th century.
