Bride Parish

WHICH lies in the sheading of Ayre, forms most northern part of the Island. It is three miles and a half in length from north to south, by a mean breadth from east to west of about two miles. The church is four miles and a half north of Ramsey; the living is a rectory in the gift of the crown. There are besides two methodist chapels in the parish. The surface is level. with a few gentle elevations. The point of Ayre, the most northern part of the parish and of the island, stretches out to a considerable distance into the sea, and is very dangerous to shipping; but a light-house, which is one hundred and six feet in height, affords assistance in guiding the mariner.
