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.
