What a lovely building which I have never spotted before.

Pretty sure it is private ownership now and not part of the Church.

Bride is one of the three parishes on the Isle of Man which have Rectories (Andreas, Ballaugh and Bride) all remaining parishes have Vicarages.

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

I love this little Cottage situated on the road at Cranstal in Bride, and the red roses around the door are fantastic.

The parish of Bride is the most northerly of the 17 parishes on the Isle of Man and its church was reputedly founded by St Bridget in the sixth century.

The foundation stone of the present church was laid on July 29, 1869, by the wife of the then Lieutenant Governor, Mrs Loch.

Ewan Christian designed the church based on the simple basilica plan, with a semi-circle apse and high lombardic tower. The edifice comprised a nave and chancel. The windows are all stained glass, all given by benefactors. It can accommodate a congregation of 150.

Dedicated to St Bridget, the church was consecrated on September 8, 1876, by Bishop Selwyn, first bishop of New Zealand, later bishop of Lichfield.

This small aircraft sits alone at Andreas Airfield in the North of the Island.

The airfield was opened in 1941 as a Fighter Command Airfield for the RAF.

The Airfield is now operated by Andreas Gliding Club and by Microlight enthusiasts.

Rose Cottage in Regaby, and the interesting aspect of this beautiful Manx Cottage is the gate pillar and the cast hand of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley.  Measured from floor to the tip of the hand it measures 7’11” which is exactly the same height of the Manx Giant, feel free to get in touch if you know the connection between Rose Cottage and Arthur Caley the Manx Giant.

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6
