A few internal and external images of this famous Manx church to go with my last video of the church of Ninian (now always called Trinian) which stands beside the Douglas To Peel Road under Greeba Mountain.

It was built in the 12th century on the site of an ancient keeil and extensively altered in the 14th century. A number of cross slabs are kept inside the ruined church on the site which has no public access.

The ruins are the scene of the story of the Buggane of St Trinian’s who persistently blew off the church roof as fast as it was rebuilt. The village tailor undertook to make a pair of breeches as soon as the roof had been completed which would then drive the Buggane away. The tailor was down to the last button but ran out of thread and whilst away the roof was again blown off.

The bridge was also known as the Crossag, which crosses the Silverburn River near to Rushen Abbey, dating from the mid-14th century the four feet wide packhorse bridge is an example of only a few which survive in the whole of Britain.

Here is an image and a very short video of  the magical, mystical, beautiful and truly original Fairy Bridge at Kewaigue, Braddan. 🇮🇲

Standing here made me feel like I was not alone, so eerie but so very peaceful…

My late father used to visit this magical place when he was a kid and told me many times about it and how he loved to walk out there.
