The entrance to the Royal Chapel in St Johns - © Peter KilleyThis image shows the entrance to the famous Royal Chapel at St Johns and its worth noting the direction of the Three Legs of Mann which is dated 1848 – (click image for larger view).

I have had many a debate over the direction of which way the 3 Legs of Mann should point, but ultimately the legs should point in the opposite way to which you can see here, the correct direction which can be traced back to the pommel on the Manx Sword of State in the 12th century should point in the opposite direction to this image! – Source Manxscenes.com

I took this image on the 2nd July 2011, the image shows the beginning of the demolition of the rear side of the once grande hotel which gracefully overlooked the northern part of Ramsey Bay.

The hotel, which first opened in 1897 as the Ramsey Hydro, closed its doors for the last time in February 2009, click here for an image that I took of the front of the hotel in September 2004 – (click below image for larger view).

I will ensure that a picture of the replacement hotel is added to the site when it happens!
