This lovely old, once loved building at Cronkdoo is set low in the valley near to Druidale and is now where the hill sheep from the area go inside for shelter.

You can also make out the rusty corn mill cogs to the rear of the old building.

Whenever I visit these old Tholtan type buildings I realise just how hard life must have been for these old Manx Crofters.

The largest replica Viking longship ever built is seen here arriving in Peel today. The Dragon Harald Fairhair, hand-built in Norway over a period of two years will spend one night moored on Peel Quayside.

The longship’s length (57ft/35m) is about half the size of a football pitch and it has 25 pairs of oars.

The longship was named after Harald Fairhair, the king who unified Norway.

Sulby Bridge station opened on the 23rd September 1879 as part of the Manx Northern Railways St John to Ramsey line, it is built in red sandstone which was quarried from Peel.

The station is named after the adjacent Sulby Bridge, and it’s rather isolated position meant that it was not as busy as the nearby Sulby Glen station.

The St John to Ramsey line and all of its stations, including Sulby Bridge station closed completely in 1968.

Railway House is now in private ownership.

I went into the graveyard have a look at the old grave of Bishop Wilson and got a bit carried away with my camera (as you do).

This time I somehow managed to avoid the four sheep and one ram in the graveyard 🙂
