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.
