Standing on the Ballavar Road next to Archallagan Plantation in Foxdale and overlooking the buildings of the MSPCA in the centre of the image, South Barrule Plantation is top left, next to the Plantation is South Barrule Quarry, you can also just make out the heather starting to burst into colour on the upper hills.

How lucky are we to have such a wonderful countryside!

This sculpture of Manx Martyr Illiam Dhone (also known as William Christian) is displayed in Malew Parish Church and the plaque underneath the sculpture simply states “Here lies Illiam Dhone, William Christian of Ronaldsway, shot to death at Hango Hill on 2nd January 1663” – January 2nd 2013 marks the 350th anniversary of his execution.

Before I give you some history into this chained grave, non of this info can be fully supported and maybe the subject of Isle of Man myth!

This rather strange grave brings many visitors to Malew Churchyard and as can be seen by the image it is iron staked at each corner and randomly heavily chained to allegedly keep the vampire in!

The alleged Vampire was a Mr Hassal who died aged 54, when Mr Hassal died the Undertakers were not allowed to bring his body onto the consecrated church grounds so rumour has it that they loaded his body into the grave from behind the wall, it was then covered in a heavy slate slab and staked with iron posts and iron chains.

To add to this conundrum Mr Hassal’s wife Margaret is also buried in this chained grave!

Malew Church is one of the most ancient parish churches of the Isle of Man, dating from the establishment of the parochial system in perhaps the twelfth century and the Church remains officially the parish church for the parish of that name (which includes Derbyhaven, Ballasalla, Grenaby, Ballamodha and St Mark’s, but no longer Castletown).

The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera dipped in HDR 5, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5
