A short video clip to go with my last set of images of the beautiful Tholtans of Crammag high up above Sulby Reservoir, and a little further on to Lhergyrhenny and its little Tholtan up there 🇮🇲

Such a beautiful area but I realise these people who lived there must have had a very hard life especially in such an isolated area of the Isle of Man.

Love this little packhorse bridge over the Crammag River in Sulby. It is so isolated and I would imagine used by the occupants of the nearby Crammag Tholtans about a mile or so away.

With the decision by Graham to close the doors on Caley’s General Store and Post Office in Sulby on March 28th 2020, I decided to ask Graham if I can take a few pictures for this website and for a historic record of such wonderful people and a fantastic village store in Sulby.

I have also included a very similar image that I took of the late Raymond Caley in June of 2016 (RIP Raymond).

A lovely guided walk around Killabregga Tholtans this afternoon with Ballaugh Heritage Trust, this particular Tholtan was one of the two homes amongst all the barns and piggery and threshing house etc. The upright stones to the right of the image were thought to be peat drying stones, where the peat was hung over to dry out.

Killabregga Farm was last farmed in the early 1960’s by the Kinrade family.
