3 images of Manx Tholtans, image 1 and 2 are Park Llewellyn. This beautiful once loved Manx Tholtan at Park Llewellyn sits on the foot of the slopes of North Barrule. Quite difficult to imagine how tough life in this isolated home might have been. But believe me the view out the front door overlooking Cornaa Valley with views of the North Laxey Mines nearby might have been some consolation. Without a doubt one of the most beautiful ruins on the entire island 🇮🇲

Image 3 is the nearby Tholtan of Cornaa Farm which I believe was still occupied in the late 70’s, again this beautiful once loved home enjoyed very similar views to the neighbouring Park Llewellyn.

The Isle of Man Steam Packet’s Ben My Chree 40 minutes prior to berthing in Douglas Harbour. I am sure that wind farm is getting closer to the Isle of Man?!

A nice walk around Laxey on Saturday.

Image 1 – Laxey Railway Station looking very tidy and pretty, Laxey Station is an intermediate station that serves electric trams running from Douglas to Ramsey and return and is the start of the Snaefell Mountain railway climb and descent.

Image 2 – A slightly different perspective from high above the Laxey Wheel in the hills at Agneash. The wheel was built in 1854 in order to drain the mines of water and was officially started by Lieutenant Governor Hope and it was named in honour of his wife “Lady Isabella”.
