Love this, these RNLI Dunlop wellies are hung on a temporary building opposite the Lifeboat Station on Battery Pier in Douglas 😆

3 images of Manx Tholtans, image 1 and 2 are Park Llewellyn. This beautiful once loved Manx Tholtan at Park Llewellyn sits on the foot of the slopes of North Barrule. Quite difficult to imagine how tough life in this isolated home might have been. But believe me the view out the front door overlooking Cornaa Valley with views of the North Laxey Mines nearby might have been some consolation. Without a doubt one of the most beautiful ruins on the entire island 🇮🇲

Image 3 is the nearby Tholtan of Cornaa Farm which I believe was still occupied in the late 70’s, again this beautiful once loved home enjoyed very similar views to the neighbouring Park Llewellyn.

The Isle of Man Steam Packet’s Ben My Chree 40 minutes prior to berthing in Douglas Harbour. I am sure that wind farm is getting closer to the Isle of Man?!

This quaint little church was formerly attached to the Parish church of Kirk Braddan but now Marown, this 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 🇮🇲
