A view of St. Judes Church and beyond through to Snaefell Mountain.
Sulby Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at Sulby Cross Roads.
Built between 1912-1914 at a cost of £2,120, at one time known locally as The Theologians’ chapel, as so many men became preachers, especially just before 1914 war.
I just love this little traditional old Manx store in Sulby it’s also a great Post Office and Raymond is such a gentleman.

A lovely walk today to another beautiful old Manx Tholtan, this particular Tholtan is called Croit and is on the sloapes between Druidale and Sulby Reservoir.
Makes you appreciate just how lucky we are to have such a wonderful countryside on our Island.
This small group of tholtans are situated deep in the trees in the heart of Tholt y Will Plantation, Craigmooar means Great Rock or Crag.
Craigmooar belongs to a small group of nearby hill farms (now tholtans) namely Killabrega, Sherragh Vane and Bulrhenny.
It is believed that Craigmooar was about 80 acres in total and apparently In 1874, there was a woman and her daughter recorded living here as being unable to speak anything other than Manx, probably some of the last people to be like that on the Island.
This particular group of tholtans took some finding but it was well worth it and makes you realise just how hard life would have been for the inhabitants of these isolated hill farms.
At Salmon Leap in Sulby Claddagh today.
I just love this part of our Island, we are so lucky to have these beautiful places.
A lovely walk this afternoon, this image is overlooking the remote but beautiful Tholtans of ‘Upper Grange’, which is high up on the Narradale track above Sulby.
I love this beautiful area of Sulby.

A lovely hike down to this group of tholtans this afternoon, whenever I visit these tholtans I always wonder what life was like for these people!
