Set in a beautiful wooded valley by the River Dhoo. The churchyard is full of Georgian headstones and is a wonderful place for photographers and anyone with an interest in Manx history and architecture to visit.

Now better known as Nightlife, this building has been in Market Place in Ramsey since at least 1846.

The building is an Isle of Man Government listed building and looking at the beautiful architecture you can understand why that is.

If you look up above the first floor windows you can see Saddle Hotel inscribed in the stonework with carved saddles below.

A blacksmith used to have his foundry in the lane that runs alongside and I wonder if this has some connection to the name ‘Saddle Hotel’?

Master Frank – RY95 is a Manx built, half-decker fishing boat seen here berthed in Ramsey Harbour.

Master Frank is the Island’s longest surviving half-decker. Records differ as to whether she was built in 1893 or 1895.

Measuring 40ft overall, Master Frank was built by Messrs. Clucas and Duggan, shipwrights, boat and canoe builders and block and spar makers, whose yard was at the rear of Marsden Terrace in Ramsey.

The entrance gate to Taylor’s Meadow in Sulby, has this got a Witchcraft connection? and I love the four brooms on the gate 🙂

High up in Bishopscourt Glen is a lovely small cave with a carved stone seat. This cave is thought to have been used by bishops for the purpose of rest and meditation. Bishop Murray reputedly took refuge here from angry locals at the time of the 1825 potato (tithe) riots. Nearby is a stone called “Creg Nyn Ushag” (Rock of the Bird) which is inscribed ‘Lead me to the rock that is higher than I’, probably dating from about 1880.
