Magnetic Hill Ronague

“Turn your car engine off and marvel as a magic stone pulls the vehicle uphill. Magnetic Hill is located on the A27 between Ronague and the Round Table crossroads. The slope is marked by this large stone on the roadside verge that is said to be part of a stone circle broken up a hundred years ago by a coven of witches”.

Sorry for the poor quality of the image but it is quite difficult to make out the wording.

High up on Cronk Ny Arrey Laa is this beautiful stone inscribed with the Manx Fisherman’s Evening Hymn, by WH Gill.

Looking further South you can make out the Sloc, Bradda Head and onwards to the Calf of Man.

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.
