A lovely walk today on the Wizard of Mann Trail in Ballaglass Glen, found the Fairy House and said hi to the Fairies down there then had a word on the Wizard too 🇮🇲

The Bluebells are not in full bloom yet so another visit to this beautiful glen is a must very soon.

This beautiful stained glass window is the first thing you see as you enter into the porch of St. Peter’s Church in Cregneash Village 🇮🇲

It depicts a Manx Loaghtan sheep, spring daffodils, primroses, foxgloves, bluebells and lilies and a little robin also 🇮🇲

This gorgeous window is dedicated to Harry Quirk 1934 to 1997.

A lovely guided walk around Killabregga Tholtans this afternoon with Ballaugh Heritage Trust, this particular Tholtan was one of the two homes amongst all the barns and piggery and threshing house etc. The upright stones to the right of the image were thought to be peat drying stones, where the peat was hung over to dry out.

Killabregga Farm was last farmed in the early 1960’s by the Kinrade family.

An interior and exterior image of St. Adamnan’s Church.

This quaint little church in is one of the Islands oldest churches where the walls date back to possibly the 12th century on a site used since perhaps the first Christian missionaries on the Isle of Man.

The site is steeped in Manx History and if you look at the bottom right external image you can make out the Celtic Wheel Head Cross that is almost completely covered in interlacing, knot work and plait work designs. This stone dates from the 9th or even the 10th century.

(Manx National Heritage catalogued Cross No. 73)

Approximately one mile north of Kirk Michael lies Bishopscourt which was once the home of many of the Isle of Man’s Bishops – This beautiful building which is steeped in Manx history is now in private ownership.
