West Baldwin

All posts tagged West Baldwin

One of several sites where sittings of Tynwald (the Manx Parliament) have taken place. The date on the plaque gives the date as 1428. The site was chosen because it approximates the geographic centre of the Isle of Man and is known as Killabane.

This site is just above St Luke’s Church in West Baldwin and you can just make out that quaint church.

St Lukes Church in West Baldwin was formerly attached to the parish church of Kirk Braddan and now Marown, the church was built in 1836 on the site of a Celtic church called “Keeill Abban”, an ancient Celtic cross has also been built into the west gable section of the building which was also used as a school up to 1871.

Behind this chapel and up the hill is the ancient site of *Tynwald which was held there as far back as 1429 and is now marked by a circle of stones.
