I am pretty sure I can remember going into this little old building at Smeale in Andreas when it was a General Store in the late 70’s.

One of several sites where sittings of Tynwald (the Manx Parliament) have taken place. The date on the plaque gives the date as 1428. The site was chosen because it approximates the geographic centre of the Isle of Man and is known as Killabane.

This site is just above St Luke’s Church in West Baldwin and you can just make out that quaint church.

This quaint church was formerly attached to the parish church of Kirk Braddan but now Marown, the church was built in 1836 on the site of a Celtic church called “Keeill Abban”, an ancient Celtic cross has also been built into the west gable section of the building which was also used as a school up to 1871.

Behind this chapel and up the hill is the ancient site of Tynwald which was held there as far back as 1429 and is now marked by a circle of stones.

On the way home yesterday on the Staarvey Road I decided to take a picture of the unusual Bell Tower on the barn of Ballakaighen Farm.

I bumped into the owner of the farm a Mr Donald Cannan (as in piccie) this man who is 85 years of age is still a working farmer and an absolute true Manxman and Gentleman.

Donald told me the story of the old Cronk y Voddy Church undergoing extensive renovation in the late 70’s and how he went to the auction room and bought the bell which now stands above his barn on the Staarvey Road in Cronk y Voddy, the bell is still used now and again, especially on Tynwald Day which is also the the Cronk y Voddy Sports day and the Cronk y Voddy Eisteddfod.

Donald also mentioned that the old bell can be traced back to 1852 which makes this original bell 163 years old (in 2015).

Donald told me all sorts of lovely stories about his life and it was an absolute honour to have met him, he even rang the bell for me to prove it still worked.

A lovely walk up to this beautiful once loved home which is just above Lhergydhoo between the Staarvey Road and Knocksharry on the Peel to Kirk Michael Coast Road.

Talking to a nearby farmer about this old house, he can remember this property being occupied circa 1945 by a man named Killey who had the nickname of ‘Killey the Gull’.

This Tholtan captures stunning and uninterupted views looking, North, South and to the West of the Island.
