The most isolated of all Manx keeills which stands on a small platform on the steep western sloapes near to the foot of Cronk Ny Arrey Laa.

The original boundaries of the burial ground are almost perfect and just outside the foundation of the priest’s cell.

Several cross slabs and many lintel graves have also been discovered here.

The name Lag Ny Keeilley means “The hollow of the chapel”

The Tholtans at Crammag, above Sulby Reservoir.

A lovely hike down to this group of tholtans this afternoon, whenever I visit these tholtans I always wonder what life was like for these people!

This lovely old VW Camper is parked up next to Mooragh Park in Ramsey and it has a note on the screen that says;

“I may look neglected but my owner loves me very much, I am not for sale!” 🙂 🙂

The Celtic cross memorial was unveiled on 8th November 1923 by the Lieutenant Governor Sir William Fry. It was dedicated by the Lord Bishop of Sodor and Man and it was designed by P.M.C. Kermode and carved by T.H. Royston.

Quite a topical subject at the moment with the recent severe gales and the coastal erosion that has occurred due to the storms.

I captured this image today whilst travelling from Peel of the sandy West coastline of the Island from Kirk Michael up to Jurby Head, with the evidence of coastal erosion quite prominent.

You can also see in the top left of the image the white spire of Jurby Church and on the extreme right you can make out Kirk Michael Church.
