I captured this image this afternoon just prior to sunset (clock on the building was wrong) as the sun lit up the front of the building (Photographers Golden Hour), the building was erected in 1953 opposite the former Nobles Hospital in Westmoreland Road at a cost of £172,008.

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

This little lobster boat “Pibbin” which is tied up in Ramsey Inner Harbour always catches my eye whenever I am in Ramsey and I grabbed this image yesterday as the winters afternoon sun was starting to dip down behind Albert Tower.

This stained glass window inside St. Peter’s Church in Onchan depicts Maughold Parish Church and the “Maughold Parish Cross” which is a 14th century St. Bees sandstone carving and is one of the earliest representations of the 3 Legs of Mann (apart from the 3 Legs inscribed on the Pommel of the 12th Century Manx Sword of State) it is also interesting to note which direction the 3 Legs are pointing!

I have taken a number of images of the stained glass windows in St. Peter’s and I will add them to Manxscenes.com over the coming months.

This beautiful Church in Onchan was built in 1833 and is dedicated to St. Peter

A little bit of trivia;  The rain drip stones (I am sure that terminology is wrong) above the louvered openings in the Bell Tower are constructed with headstones and if you look up at them you can see names and inscriptions on them!

Spotted the Dublin registered Tug “Deilginis” sitting off the Tower of Refuge in Douglas Bay last week.

I am pretty sure she was accompanying the Excalibur jack-up barge that was also sheltering in the Bay.

This former Hotel has now been converted into luxury apartments.

The building stands high above Port St Mary Breakwater and I am sure the views from the top apartment will be stunning.

Rose Cottage in Regaby, and the interesting aspect of this beautiful Manx Cottage is the gate pillar and the cast hand of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley.  Measured from floor to the tip of the hand it measures 7’11” which is exactly the same height of the Manx Giant, feel free to get in touch if you know the connection between Rose Cottage and Arthur Caley the Manx Giant.

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.
