Isle of Man Black and White Images

Some of my Isle of Man Images that I think look good in Black and White.

Another Black and White image to add to my collection that I am compiling over the forthcoming months of some distinguished traditional, Manx people.

This image shows Paul onboard the Isle of Man Steam Railway engine Fenella at Port Erin Railway Station, Paul is a Fireman for Isle of Man Steam Railways.

Mr Makin from Peel (with permission).

I am going to compile some Black and White images over the forthcoming months of some very distinguished traditional, Manx people.

My first image is Mr Makin who owns a fish processing factory in Peel and I see him many times on Peel Breakwater picking up his produce (queenies and scallops).

I love this old cottage called “Dinah’s Cottage” at Glen Maye but there is no way I would ever visit that outside loo after dark 🙂

On the way home yesterday on the Staarvey Road I decided to take a picture of the unusual Bell Tower on the barn of Ballakaighen Farm.

I bumped into the owner of the farm a Mr Donald Cannan (as in piccie) this man who is 85 years of age is still a working farmer and an absolute true Manxman and Gentleman.

Donald told me the story of the old Cronk y Voddy Church undergoing extensive renovation in the late 70’s and how he went to the auction room and bought the bell which now stands above his barn on the Staarvey Road in Cronk y Voddy, the bell is still used now and again, especially on Tynwald Day which is also the the Cronk y Voddy Sports day and the Cronk y Voddy Eisteddfod.

Donald also mentioned that the old bell can be traced back to 1852 which makes this original bell 163 years old (in 2015).

Donald told me all sorts of lovely stories about his life and it was an absolute honour to have met him, he even rang the bell for me to prove it still worked.

What a lovely building which I have never spotted before.

Pretty sure it is private ownership now and not part of the Church.

Bride is one of the three parishes on the Isle of Man which have Rectories (Andreas, Ballaugh and Bride) all remaining parishes have Vicarages.
