Part of Central Government Offices in Bucks Road in Douglas is this Legislative building which is better known as “The Wedding Cake”

The Government on the Isle of Man is a parliament called Tynwald.  Tynwald is over a 1000 years old and believed to be the oldest continual parliament in the world.

Whilst driving down the coast road to the Lhen in Andreas we were confronted by these fellas 🙂

They were all very well behaved and the Shepards were very grateful to all the drivers in the queue of traffic for stopping.

Had a lovely walk around Ballaglass Glen today, the Bluebells are like a carpet and are just about to fade for this season.

Also right next to the river is this old derelict Flax Mill and you can just about make out the Mills cog wheel

The name Ballaglass could be translated to ‘Farm of the Stream’.

We went for a beautiful walk this evening up to “The Forgotten Valley” at Glen Dhoo in Ballaugh.

Glen Dhoo in Manx Gaelic simply means “Black Glen” because when the sun is sinking in the sky and disappears behind the hill the Glen is cast into shade.

This forgotten valley is untouched and absolutely beautiful and this lovely little Manx Tholtan, better known as “The Port” or “Phurt” has a small stream running past the front of it.

The images were all captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

I can remember this little old building at Smeale in Andreas as a General Store in the 70’s.

To get in the shop you had to walk up the path by the Post Box and the shop had a wooden counter, I can remember having to wait for ages for someone to come and serve me!

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized, cropped  and converted to black and white with the post box highlighted in it’s original colour in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Just past Ballaugh Bridge on the TT Course and tucked in the hedge is this memorial to two quite famous people that will definitely be remembered in TT and MGP History.

The bottom plaque is dedicated to staunch TT and MGP Marshall Gwen Crellin who lived just passed Ballaugh Bridge on the TT Course, Gwen come rain, hail or shine would be outside her house before every TT and MGP practice or race.  Gwen passed away in 2007 aged 89 years and this plaque is dedicated to her.

* N.B The plaque was originally presented to Gwen by the MGP Supporters Club in 1997 and was fixed to the front of Gwens house, it is now displayed across the road from Gwens house as part of this memorial.

The top bronze plaque  is dedicated to Gary Dickinson 1934 to 1993, Gary was better known as “The Mighty Atom” during the TT, because of his slight stature Gary had to carry a lead block fastened to his motorbike frame under his left boot so he could reach the minimum racing weight.

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.
