Glen Auldyn Church, now known as St Fingan’s is about 180 years old.

This tiny church was originally a Methodist Chapel but changed to a C of E in 1968 after being sold to a Mr Yates of Milntown for £100. He died just after and his wife renovated the small Church at a cost of £3000.

A lovely walk this afternoon, this image is overlooking the remote but beautiful Tholtans of ‘Upper Grange’, which is high up on the Narradale track above Sulby.

Built in the mid 1800’s. Owned by Duncan Gibb, a Liverpool Shipping Merchant, as a summer holiday home for his family.

When the family fell on hard times Grove House became the family home. The Gibb family lived in the house for three generations until the last of Duncan Gibb’s granddaughters died.

The granddaughters, Alice and Janet Gibb, wished the house and grounds to be preserved as a museum after their deaths. And so Grove House was passed to Manx National Heritage and remains a Victorian farm frozen in time.

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.

This lovely old VW Camper is parked up next to Mooragh Park in Ramsey and it has a note on the screen that says;

“I may look neglected but my owner loves me very much, I am not for sale!” 🙂 🙂
