A lovely walk around Langness Peninsula today and I came across this inscribed rock with the words, ALL – 1853 – LOST – PROVIDER.

With a little bit of research I found that the Provider was a Schooner bound from Liverpool to Glasgow in 1853 with a cargo of salt – The Master and 3 crew were all lost and the Schooner wrecked just beyond these rocks at Langness.

With the decision by Graham to close the doors on Caley’s General Store and Post Office in Sulby on March 28th 2020, I decided to ask Graham if I can take a few pictures for this website and for a historic record of such wonderful people and a fantastic village store in Sulby.

I have also included a very similar image that I took of the late Raymond Caley in June of 2016 (RIP Raymond).
