I have literally drove past this lovey plaque so many times and have been unable to find it (located on the front wall between the cream and blue houses on image 2).

The sandstone (Knox) plaque says that King Edward VII, Queen Alexandra and Her Royal Highness Princess Victoria passed through this Kella Abbey Quarter in 1902 (The exact date was August 25th 1902).

Kella Mills is a few yards down the road as can be seen in image 2,  approximately 300 years ago it was a Flour Mill and Porridge Mill but more lately a Manx Whisky Distillery (Glen Kella).  Archibald Knox lived right next door and worked from his home circa 1900/04 – Info from Juan Vernon’s “Heritage Trail”

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

This picture was taken up the North of the Island in Jurby and shows another traditional Manx Farmhouse, as you can see the snow is now starting to melt exactly one week after the big snow of 22nd March 2013.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

This beautiful Church was built in 1833 and is situated in Station Road in Ballaugh, this Church was built to replace Old Ballaugh Church

Ballaugh was quite severely affected by a snowstorm that hit the Island on Friday 22nd March 2013 as can be seen by the snow sticking to the East facing section of the spire.

Demolition work is due to start later today (Monday) on a building which holds memories for thousands.

Park Road School is to be demolished.

The school first opened in 1894 and was used until last July when it closed and was replaced by the new £34 million building at Bemahague in Onchan.

Work is expected to take a number of weeks.

Although a housing development has been mooted, no decision has been made on what the site will be used for.

Another old Manx building gone.

Overlooking a majority of Douglas, on a very rare day where the weather was glorious and the sun was shining!

There are two images stitched together here, and the bottom section of the image is mostly offices and the financial sector of the Isle of Man (Athol Street area).

The 2 images were captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized, cropped and merged into 1 image in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

High above Douglas the silhouette of these derelict cottages on Carnane Hill can be seen from far and wide around the surrounding areas of Douglas.

Maybe someone can tell us a bit more about their history??
