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

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.
