Malew

A lovely walk around Langness Peninsula today and I came across this inscribed rock with the words, ALL – 1853 – LOST – PROVIDER.

With a little bit of research I found that the Provider was a Schooner bound from Liverpool to Glasgow in 1853 with a cargo of salt – The Master and 3 crew were all lost and the Schooner wrecked just beyond these rocks at Langness.

St Michael’s Chapel – Fort Island, Derbyhaven.

This stone-built, Norse-Celtic chapel is dedicated to St. Michael and dates from around the 12th century. It now consists of just four stone walls and a bell turret 🇮🇲

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.
