Andreas Church and War Memorial

St. Andrew’s Church in Andreas.

During the 1939 – 1945 war the original tower was reduced in height by about half because of the R.A.F airfield nearby (Click Here to see an old image of the Church with its taller tower).

The war memorial has recently been renovated and it is now a terracotta colour.

A Little Cottage by the Sea

This cottage up at the Point of Ayre is a bit run down, anyone know what it’s past is?  I seem to remember someone telling me it used to be a Smithy’s workshop!

*Edit (10.9.14) I have been informed by Mr Eric Corkish who is a Northern Historian that the Cottage was called ‘Goats Cottage’ as the occupants used to herd goats. – Thanks Eric

The Clock Tower in Foxdale

If you are like me and wonder what this Clock Tower is all about every time you drive past it then read on;

The Clock Tower in Foxdale is certainly a well known landmark in the Village and was erected and paid for in 1901 by the Foxdale Mining Company Ltd for the benefit of Foxdale and to commemorate Queen Victoria’s reign of 64 years. The tower was later restored by the Department of Local Government in 1992.

The white plague half way up the tower reads;
VICTORIA.R.I.
REIGNED 64 YEARS
AND STILL REIGNS IN THE HEARTS
OF HER PEOPLE

The wording on the lower plaque names the Chairman and Directors of the Foxdale Mining Company.
