These two bronze sculptured Ravens are erected on the rocks high above Ballafayle in memory of  the late Sir Charles Kerruish (1917 – 2003).  Sir Charles was a well known politician and former Speaker of the House of Keys.

What a beautiful and peaceful place this is.

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.
