Priests Cell

All posts tagged Priests Cell

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”

This is one of the highest waterfalls on the Isle of Man and is situated in a very isolated but tranquil setting in Glen Mooar, the name means ‘white spout’.  Close by are the remains of a keeill, Cabbyl Pherick, and a priests cell.  Spooyt Vane and Cabbyl Pherick are both accessed by ‘The Monks Road‘ this ancient road is at least 1500 years old and once linked up all the Island’s 220 keills.
