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 🇮🇲

It’s a view like this that makes me realise how fortunate I am to live on the beautiful Isle of Man.

I just loved the olde world look of this image which is at the Back Marina Road or the rear of the Gaiety Theatre in Douglas.

Reminds me of an old Downtown in New York type shot but in our beloved back streets of Douglas.

Cashtal yn Ard is one of the best ancient monuments on the Isle of Man. It is one of three Neolithic tombs, dating from about 2000 BC. It is well preserved and one of the largest of its kind in the British Isles. The monument was originally a megalithic chambered Cairn holding five chambers and extending over 130 feet long. Sites of this type were used as communal burial places for Neolithic chieftains and their families.
