Cashtal yn Ard (The Castle of the Heights)

We had a lovely walk up to this beautiful part of the Island yesterday.

Cashtal yn Ard is one of the best ancient monuments on the Isle of Man. It is one of three Neolithic tombs, dating from about 2000 BC. It is well preserved and one of the largest of its kind in the British Isles. The monument was originally a megalithic chambered Cairn holding five chambers and extending over 130 feet long. Sites of this type were used as communal burial places for Neolithic chieftains and their families.

Sunset at ‘The Royal Chapel’ in St John’s

Built on the site of an ancient keeill, the chapel of St John was first referred to in 1557, but was likely to have been built before this date. In 1847 the chapel was demolished and in 1849 this beautiful building was constructed from local granite and marble.

Cross Vein Mine Foxdale, popularly known as Snuff the Wind

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.
