I love this old cottage called “Dinah’s Cottage” at Glen Maye but there is no way I would ever visit that outside loo after dark 🙂

The most isolated of all Manx keeills which stands on a small platform on the steep western sloapes near to the foot of Cronk Ny Arrey Laa.

The original boundaries of the burial ground are almost perfect and just outside the foundation of the priest’s cell.

Several cross slabs and many lintel graves have also been discovered here.

The name Lag Ny Keeilley means “The hollow of the chapel”

Formerly miners cottages, when I was there today I counted 7 front door entrances but there could have possibly been an other one at an adjacent building!?

The stepped back image of the tholtan with 3 upper windows appears to have been the home of a more senior mining employee.

Hauntingly Beautiful

This house always catches my eye whenever I drive past, and some research shows that this house was used as one of the film sets for the 2002 TV movie, Hound of the Baskervilles.

I kid you not but these goats are rather partial to a bit of tree bark now and then 🙂

This small herd of Golden Guernsey Goats live on the Patrick Road in St John’s, I am sure the big one has a single horn in the middle of his head! Yikes…

This is not one of my normal Isle of Man Images but I thought it may be of interest to some!

I visited this grave today at Holy Trinity Church, in Kirk Patrick Village, hence the little flower.

This grave is that of the unknown man whose body was washed ashore on the coast close to the Church. The grave has a white marble curb and headstone which was provided by the generosity of Mrs Florrie Forde, who had a holiday beach cottage at the nearby Niarbyl.

The headstone bears the faded words ‘Some Mothers Son’

The cross bears the inscription – ‘British – Unidentified – Interred – 27th Feb 1918’.

And the wording on the marble surround at the front of the grave reads; ‘Erected by Florrie Forde 1927’.

This mine was worked circa 1832 to 1881 by the Isle of Man Mining Company, usually in conjunction with the more extensive Beckwith Mine situated 2/3 of a mile West and it exploited part of a vein of lead ore which was temporarily very productive . There were two shafts approximately 240’ apart, the engine shaft and the Whim shaft – So called because it was originally worked with a horse gin or whim.
