Silly Moos Campsite or better known at Ballakillingan Farm on the TT Course at Lezayre.

I just love the wall decor on this farm entrance (only on the Isle of Man springs to mind) 🙂

This lovely little pub is the only Pub in the Village and stands on the TT Course at Ballaugh Bridge, however according to my Manx book called ‘Manannan’s Isle’ by David Craine Ballaugh boasted a staggering 17 Pubs and 1 Hotel in 1830.

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud.

On the old Northern Railway Line at Ballacrye just North of Ballaugh Village is the Ballacrye Level Crossing Gatehouse, this building is where the gate keeper and his family lived;

The duties of the gatekeeper were arduous, as laid down by the Isle of Man Company in 1922 (Link to Ballaugh Heritage Trust)

  1. The gates were to be kept closed except to allow traffic to pass.
  2. Gates to be closed to the horse road five minutes before a train was due.
  3. Special trains had to give a prolonged whistle for crossings.
  4. A red board by day and three red lights at night to denote that a special train followed. Two red lights denoted a light engine following. These to be displayed on read of train or engines, special to pass within 15 minutes.
  5. A red board by day or red light at night hung on the front of the train denoted that a special train was to arrive shortly from the opposite direction.

I have always admired this lovely little property that stands at the foot of Greeba Mountain and which is also closely associated with the Buggane of St Trinian’s Church which is just down the road from this location (I will cover St Trinian’s Church on another post sometime).

The Highlander which has been a Public House since the late 1800’s has now closed it’s doors in April 2012 for the last time.

Approximately 34 miles around the world  famous Isle of Man TT Course from the TT Grandstand you will come across the original Keppel Gate (post) and around the corner the famous Kates which is better known as Kates Cottage (but originally Tate’s Cottage).
