This store has stood on this site since the 1930’s and it is generally believed that the heart of any village lies in the village shop and it is certainly true with Caley’s general store in Sulby village and it’s present proprietor Raymond Caley.

I have literally drove past this lovey plaque so many times and have been unable to find it (located on the front wall between the cream and blue houses on image 2).

The sandstone (Knox) plaque says that King Edward VII, Queen Alexandra and Her Royal Highness Princess Victoria passed through this Kella Abbey Quarter in 1902 (The exact date was August 25th 1902).

Kella Mills is a few yards down the road as can be seen in image 2,  approximately 300 years ago it was a Flour Mill and Porridge Mill but more lately a Manx Whisky Distillery (Glen Kella).  Archibald Knox lived right next door and worked from his home circa 1900/04 – Info from Juan Vernon’s “Heritage Trail”

The images were captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

High up in the hills above the Sulby Valley at an area known as Slieaumonagh, which is roughly between Snaefell Mountain and Slieau Managh Mountain on the track to Block Eairy reservoir lies the remains of these beautiful Manx Crofters cottages, there must be approximately eight derelict stone cottages up there, which must really have been a small village!

I am interested to learn more about these derelict cottages, please drop me a mail via my contact page or feel free to write a comment on this page regarding this subject if you can help.

The images were all captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

These tree statues are hauntingly situated in a field on the Sulby Glen Road and depict two chain saw sculptres from local chain saw artist Nick Barlow, “The Wizard” is about 12 feet high and “The Angel” measures about the 10 feet.

Certainly worth taking a look if your down that way 🙂

The images was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

This beautiful church has always proved a difficult image for me to capture under the correct light conditions especially as this particular elevation faces North!

I also captured an image of this church in March 2004 click and I have to say that it appears the spire of the church is starting to show signs of deterioration and age, however I totally understand the massive cost of maintaining such a beautiful church, especially with shrinking congregations!
