Standing inside Old Ballaugh Church at the Cronk and looking out towards the famous leaning entrance pillars.

This little Church always intrigues me with its leaning entrance pillars, I have heard so many myths about the reasons why the pillars are leaning that I just don’t really know what to believe now!

This lovely little pub is the only Pub in the Village and stands on the TT Course at Ballaugh Bridge, however according to my Manx book called ‘Manannan’s Isle’ by David Craine Ballaugh boasted a staggering 17 Pubs and 1 Hotel in 1830.

Just inside the the entrance to Bishopscourt Glen (north of Kirk Michael) is an artificial mound named Mount Aeolus, created by Bishop Hildesley to commemorate Captain Elliott’s victory over the French off the Manx coast on 28 February 1760.

The mound which is shaped in similarity to Tynwald Hill has a inscribed monument on the top of it detailing Capatain Elliott’s victory.

We went for a beautiful walk this evening up to “The Forgotten Valley” at Glen Dhoo in Ballaugh.

Glen Dhoo in Manx Gaelic simply means “Black Glen” because when the sun is sinking in the sky and disappears behind the hill the Glen is cast into shade.

This forgotten valley is untouched and absolutely beautiful and this lovely little Manx Tholtan, better known as “The Port” or “Phurt” has a small stream running past the front of it.

The images were all captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
