I have just read a lovely old Manx book called Legends of a Lifetime by the late George E. Quayle and he makes mention that in 1890 the family of a nearby resident of the Church (Mr Hicks) installed 8 Tubular Bells in the tower of this fine old church in his memory.

George E. Quayle mentions that his parents were married in the church at a similar date and the peal of tubular bells played ‘Abide With Me’ on their wedding day, apparently since then the bells have never played a tune since, apart from the odd jingle on a Sunday and the solemn minute bell for funerals.

I personally did not realise that ‘Abide With Me’ was a wedding hymn but I did think that this is a lovely story worth sharing.

Sadly today this fine old church is now on the open market for sale, a sign of the times indeed.

Formerly miners cottages, when I was there today I counted 7 front door entrances but there could have possibly been an other one at an adjacent building!?

The stepped back image of the tholtan with 3 upper windows appears to have been the home of a more senior mining employee.

What a fantastic afternoon we spent at Smeale Farm in Andreas on Saturday, this lovely traditional Manx farm is so very well run by Steve, Beth and Chris, and to be honest it is a credit to them all.

As you can probably see they are right in the middle of the lambing season and Steve kindly showed us all the lambing sheds and all the expectant Mums and Nicky was so very lucky to deliver twins with the help of Steve.

Beth and Steve also offer tours of Smeale Farm and provide an insight into their contribution to Manx produce, I would highly recommend anyone with an interest in Manx farming and Manx produce to get in touch with them via their website – ManxFarmHols.com

An old TT ‘quick filler’ outside the Creg Ny Baa Hotel.

Not sure of the relevance of it at the Creg Ny Baa!?

This is what I love about the Isle of Man, I came across these fellas today on the coast road near to the Lhen.
The sheep and lambs were all very well behaved and the Shepards were very grateful to the motorists for stopping.
