Malew

Very probably the subject of Isle of Man myth (which to be fair I love) It is better know as the Vampires Grave. I remember my late Dad telling me about it many years ago and I quite like taking the odd picture of it now and again.

Well worth a look at the grave if you are passing Malew Church.

Magnetic Hill Ronague

“Turn your car engine off and marvel as a magic stone pulls the vehicle uphill. Magnetic Hill is located on the A27 between Ronague and the Round Table crossroads. The slope is marked by this large stone on the roadside verge that is said to be part of a stone circle broken up a hundred years ago by a coven of witches”.

Sorry for the poor quality of the image but it is quite difficult to make out the wording.

High up on Cronk Ny Arrey Laa is this beautiful stone inscribed with the Manx Fisherman’s Evening Hymn, by WH Gill.

Looking further South you can make out the Sloc, Bradda Head and onwards to the Calf of Man.

Situated in the Parish of Kirk Malew this quaint little Church was built in 1772 and is attached to the parish Church of Kirk Malew.

Originally this church was built to accommodate about 200 people and was intended to provide a more convenient Chapel of Ease together with a parish school for those from the outlying districts!
