Braddan

This quaint little church was formerly attached to the Parish church of Kirk Braddan but now Marown, this church was built in 1836 on the site of a Celtic church called “Keeill Abban”, an ancient Celtic cross has also been built into the west gable section of the building which was also used as a school up to 1871.

Behind this chapel and up the hill is the ancient site of Tynwald which was held there as far back as 1429 and is now marked by a circle of stones 🇮🇲

Standing at Mount Rule in Braddan and looking towards the East Baldwin Valley, you can see Windy Corner at the top of the valley then left to Snaefell Mountain, Beinn-y-Phott and Carraghan.

In our troubled World how lucky are we to have such lovely untouched mountains, hills and green fields.

A very isolated farmhouse and outbuildings, I actually worked there as a joiner about 35 years ago, where a family were going to renovate it!

This image was taken from the 33rd milestone on the Mountain Road the other day.

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.

High up in the hills above East Baldwin lies this derelict round stone tower which was once a regular visiting place for nearby eccentric farmer Joe Lewin, Joe built this tower on his highest land and it gave him a grand view from East Baldwin through to Douglas, legend has it that Mr Lewin used to regularly climb to the top of the tower to be closer to God!
