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.

Apparently Captain George Burrows, had a Market Garden and a coal yard in Parliament Street in Ramsey and he lived in Rose Cottage. He employed ‘The Manx Giant’ and he had the hands made which he put on the gateposts. He (Capt George Burrows) also gave some items to the Manx Museum in Douglas.

We had a lovely walk up to this beautiful part of the Island yesterday.

Cashtal yn Ard is one of the best ancient monuments on the Isle of Man. It is one of three Neolithic tombs, dating from about 2000 BC. It is well preserved and one of the largest of its kind in the British Isles. The monument was originally a megalithic chambered Cairn holding five chambers and extending over 130 feet long. Sites of this type were used as communal burial places for Neolithic chieftains and their families.

This mine was worked circa 1832 to 1881 by the Isle of Man Mining Company, usually in conjunction with the more extensive Beckwith Mine situated 2/3 of a mile West and it exploited part of a vein of lead ore which was temporarily very productive . There were two shafts approximately 240’ apart, the engine shaft and the Whim shaft – So called because it was originally worked with a horse gin or whim.
