Milner’s Tower on Bradda Head in Port Erin was built in 1871 by public subscription as a memorial to the benefactor of Port Erin, William Milner, who did much to help the village fishermen and the poor.

Milner was a famous safemaker from Liverpool and the unusual shape of the Tower represents a key and a lock.

Very probably the subject of Isle of Man myth (which to be fair I love) It is better know as the Vampires Grave. I remember my late Dad telling me about it many years ago and I quite like taking the odd picture of it now and again.

Well worth a look at the grave if you are passing Malew Church.

The church was constructed as a result of a bequest in the will of Henry Bloom Noble, his trustees provided land at the junction of St Ninian’s Road and Ballaquayle Road, and money for the construction of this beautiful church which was completd in 1913 and consecrated as a parish church the following year.

The church is constructed of local slate and its tower dominates the landscape and indeed the skyline of Douglas.
