Now they don’t make door entrances like this nowadays 🙂

During the 1950s Mr G. B. Gardner was the owner of a fine collection of occult items. He converted the outer buildings adjoining this three-storey windmill in Arbory Road into a museum of witchcraft and magic.

This fine mill is now in private ownership.

Langness lighthouse on Langness Peninsula was designed by Thomas Stevenson (Robert Louis Stevenson’s father) and first lit in 1880 and was finally automated in 1996 by the Northern Lighthouse Board.

The foghorn that is situated right behind the lighthouse and that is adjacent to Dreswick Harbour.

The footpath around the rear (or seaward side of the lighthouse) has recently been the subject of a Public inquiry on the Isle of Man which has ruled in favour of the ramblers.
