A view high up and looking through the glorious Sulby Valley.

How lucky are we to have such beautiful unspoilt countryside in many areas of the Isle of Man.

The foundation stone to this lovely church was laid in 1854 and the building was completed in 1855 but was not consecrated until May 1856.

The church was built on land provided by Mr Geo. W. Dumbbell, chairman of the mining company, which forms part of the garden belonging to to the Mines Captain’s House (now the Mines Tavern). The building which became known as “The Miners Church”, cost £950 to which the Great Laxey Mining Company donated £200.

This lovely Sculpture at Ham and Egg Terrace in Laxey by Ongky Wijana was funded by Laxey resident, the late Mrs Phillis Tate and is a fitting tribute to the great Laxey Miners.

Some strange weather going on with this bank of mist the other day.

This image was taken looking from Keppel Gate on the Mountain Road overlooking the East Baldwin Valley towards Carraghan and Beinn-Y-Phott.

Typical I didn’t have my DSLR but my little pocket camera saved the day.

I just love this little old Manx Cottage on the junction of Ellerslie Lane and Glen Darragh Road in Glen Vine.

This little cottage was originally part of the Ellerslie Farm Estate!
