Above Ballafayle in Maughold lies this Quakers burial ground.

The burial ground is alongside the narrow road through Ballajora, the plaque on the entrance to the site states that William Callow gave the piece of ground as a burial place for Quakers, and he was buried here in 1676.

The inscription on his headstone reads;

William Callow
of Ballafayle
1629 – 1676
suffered long persecution
frequent imprisonment
and finally banishment
from his native Island
for his faith.

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.

Just look how cold that sea looks and believe me it was freezing up there this afternoon.

Maughold Lighthouse was built in 1914 on the Southern side of Maughold Head, the fully automated light is 65m above sea level and access to the Lighthouse is via 129 steps (non Public access).

Had a lovely walk around Ballaglass Glen today, the Bluebells are like a carpet and are just about to fade for this season.

Also right next to the river is this old derelict Flax Mill and you can just about make out the Mills cog wheel

The name Ballaglass could be translated to ‘Farm of the Stream’.

The images were 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.

Grabbed this image the other day whilst up in Ballaragh, The Dhoon Glen is at the bottom of the image, North Barrule Mountain is snow capped to the left of the image and Maughold can be seen to the top right of the image.

This stained glass window inside St. Peter’s Church in Onchan depicts Maughold Parish Church and the “Maughold Parish Cross” which is a 14th century St. Bees sandstone carving and is one of the earliest representations of the 3 Legs of Mann (apart from the 3 Legs inscribed on the Pommel of the 12th Century Manx Sword of State) it is also interesting to note which direction the 3 Legs are pointing!

I have taken a number of images of the stained glass windows in St. Peter’s and I will add them to Manxscenes.com over the coming months.

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6

Well what a sunny fantastic Sunday here on the Isle of Man so we took Ted up to Maughold and walked from the front door of Maughold Church to the beach at the foot of  ‘Gob ny Port Mooar’!

Firstly we were confronted by about 50 sheep being rounded up and being moved from one field to another, Ted was not happy and very quiet seeing all these white 4 legged things running up the footpath that he was walking on!

The walk was wonderful and sometimes a little scary on the headland down to the beach due to the steepness and slippery conditions.

Ted and Nick loved it and we spent a pleasurable hour or so on the beach and the headlands.

What a fantastic way to spend our Sunday afternoon and we were back home around two or so hours later.

We took Ted for a walk down to ‘Gob ny Portmooar’ today, this remote beach is just South of Maughold Head Lighthouse and Teds first distraction was this flock of sheep which were being rounded up by the farmer and his wife.

Image 2 on was captured the headland rocks at ‘Gob ny Portmooar’ and looking up towards Maughold Head lighthouse.

Both images were 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.

I captured this image this afternoon whilst out for a walk over Maughold Headlands, you can see the weather front moving across North Barrule mountain and shortly after this image was taken it absolutely chucked it down!

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, dipped in HDR, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

"Christchurch" The Dhoon in Glenmona - © Peter KilleyThis little church that is situated off the main coast road from Laxey to Ramsey at Glenmona is so hidden in the trees that you cannot usually see it as you drive past.

As winter is now virtually upon us and the leaves have relatively dissapeared from the trees, I spotted this little church today and had to picture it!

According to Frances Coakley’s “Manx Notebook” The first foundation stone was laid in June 1854 and the Church was consecrated in Decemeber 1855.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 18mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
