This looks a marvellous little shop. Does it sell everything?
Yes he sells virtually everything Eleanor, its like going back in time in the shop but how nice is that 🙂
There used to be a small shop just like in a small settlement half way up a hill at the end of the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales. We used to go in every year before and after climbing the mountain. We always got such a warm welcome from Myra, the owner, who brought us up to date with all the local gossip and always wanted to know all our news. When she died it was all stripped out and became a house. It was such a shame.
I always, always ask myself if when I go there again there will be any chance of such a guide tour by such an expert like you Peter!!! I adore specially sites like this lil shops where we can meet people, stories, history, memoires, and specially manx frendly smiles and welcomes!!!! Can´t wait!
P.S.: How hard it is to move around the island by bicycle?????

I used to walk to that shop to get paraffin in the very early 50s from a house near sulby bridge. Amazing to see it’s like I remember it.
