Grove House in Ramsey

Built in the mid 1800’s. Owned by Duncan Gibb, a Liverpool Shipping Merchant, as a summer holiday home for his family.

When the family fell on hard times Grove House became the family home. The Gibb family lived in the house for three generations until the last of Duncan Gibb’s granddaughters died.

The granddaughters, Alice and Janet Gibb, wished the house and grounds to be preserved as a museum after their deaths. And so Grove House was passed to Manx National Heritage and remains a Victorian farm frozen in time.

Bride Rectory

What a lovely building which I have never spotted before.

Pretty sure it is private ownership now and not part of the Church.

Bride is one of the three parishes on the Isle of Man which have Rectories (Andreas, Ballaugh and Bride) all remaining parishes have Vicarages.

Lag Ny Keeilley

The most isolated of all Manx keeills which stands on a small platform on the steep western sloapes near to the foot of Cronk Ny Arrey Laa.

The original boundaries of the burial ground are almost perfect and just outside the foundation of the priest’s cell.

Several cross slabs and many lintel graves have also been discovered here.

The name Lag Ny Keeilley means “The hollow of the chapel”
