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 large stone in the wall in the bottom left of the image is known as the “Whipping Post” legend has it that it may have been used to tie the local vicars horse up too, however, its origin is more likely to be that it formed part of a semi-circle of similar stones associated with a pre-historic burial site.

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.

These tree statues are hauntingly situated in a field on the Sulby Glen Road and depict two chain saw sculptres from local chain saw artist Nick Barlow, “The Wizard” is about 12 feet high and “The Angel” measures about the 10 feet.

Certainly worth taking a look if your down that way 🙂

Whilst out and about today I captured this image of Kirk Braddan new Cemetery on the Braddan Road, the Mortuary Chapel is in classic Manx style designed by John Jefferson and was opened circa 1843, John Jefferson also designed what is now Joseph Bucknalls in upper Church Street and the former Methodist School in Peel by Albany Road Corner (Thanks to local Historian Peter Kelly for all his help and information)

The Cemetery is such a wealth of Manx history and the graves of two famous Manx people spring to mind, Archibald Knox and Henry Bloom Noble, incidentally my Grandad and Grandma Killey are also buried in this graveyard.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 20mm, converted into sepia to give a “Ye olde World” look and finally cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
