A lovely hike along the Raad Ny Foillan (Long Distance Path) Just below Corrins Tower on Peel Hill at Knockaloe Brooghs you can find these beautiful carvings of happy hikers, which were placed there by the Manx Footpath Conservation Group and brilliantly sculptured by Nick Barlow.

This Hiker carving is dedicated to the memory of past footpath members.

The plaque on the hikers case has a section of a poem by T.E Brown:

“To unlock the treasures of the Island heart;
With loving feet to trace each hill and glen,
And find the ore that is not for the mart
Of commerce: this is all I ask”

In many place names Killey has the meaning “of the church” as in Ballakilley, “the farm of the church”.

This lovely old Manx Tholtan is called Ballarghey 🇮🇲

It sits between Higher & Lower Foxdale behind Lhea Kerrow Farm, I believe it was once lived in by Philip Cain and his family but I am unsure how long ago since it was last inhabited!

Access was with kind permission from the land owner.
