Malew

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.

This Church that 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 mountainous districts!

Langness lighthouse on Langness Peninsula was designed by Thomas Stevenson (Robert Louis Stevenson’s father) and first lit in 1880 and was finally automated in 1996 by the Northern Lighthouse Board.

The cottages and lighthouse are now famous for being owned by Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson and his wife.

The footpath around the rear (or seaward side of the lighthouse) has recently been the subject of a Public inquiry on the Isle of Man which has ruled in favour of the ramblers.

The images was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 30mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

This stone-built, Norse-Celtic chapel is dedicated to St. Michael and dating from around the 12th century.  It is now consists of just four walls and a bell turret. The chapel would have replaced a Celtic keeill which possibly goes back to the beginnings of Christianity in the Isle of Man several centuries earlier.  There was a graveyard associated with the early keeill which contained some very early lintel graves. The graveyard, of which no trace remains visible, was used until about 1870 for the burial of shipwrecked mariners and Roman Catholics.
