Now better known as Nightlife, this building has been in Market Place in Ramsey since at least 1846.

The building is an Isle of Man Government listed building and looking at the beautiful architecture you can understand why that is.

If you look up above the first floor windows you can see Saddle Hotel inscribed in the stonework with carved saddles below.

A blacksmith used to have his foundry in the lane that runs alongside and I wonder if this has some connection to the name ‘Saddle Hotel’?

Master Frank – RY95 is a Manx built, half-decker fishing boat seen here berthed in Ramsey Harbour.

Master Frank is the Island’s longest surviving half-decker. Records differ as to whether she was built in 1893 or 1895.

Measuring 40ft overall, Master Frank was built by Messrs. Clucas and Duggan, shipwrights, boat and canoe builders and block and spar makers, whose yard was at the rear of Marsden Terrace in Ramsey.

This memorial next to the old Police Station in Parliament Street in Ramsey is quite a feat of craftsmanship. The intricate celtic design, carved out of red sandstone, stands to commemorate 108 islanders who fell in the First World War and 49 from the Second World War. Despite the dedication, this elaborate cross had not always been intended as a war memorial.

When Parson William Kermode died in 1890 his son Philip designed the cross as a memorial to him, to be erected at Kirk Maughold near Ramsey. Mr T. H. Royston was engaged to carry out the carving. It is uncertain when Mr Royston started the project, although it would most likely have been within the 1890s, yet it was still unfinished in 1914, some 24 years after Parson Kermode’s death. When, in 1919, the people of Ramsey decided to erect a war memorial, an arrangement was made to take over the Kermode cross and erect it in Parliament Street.

I just love the design of this beautiful building in Albert Street in Ramsey, the building is called Bankers Court.

You certainly do not see many buildings built like this anymore!

I had to crop this image very tight due to lots of distractions around the building.
