Kirk Michael Village

Kirk Michael, 1868
Village from O/S 1868 Map


The ribbon development of the village along the road from Peel/St Johns to Ballaugh and Ramsey can be seen - the map predates the arrival of the Manx Northern Railway whose tracks ran some 200m north and parallel to the road

Looking North this Postcard view, c 1909, shows the entrance to the old school in the centre of the village .
The other view, dating from c.1908 (the car is presumeably in one of the early TT races) shows the view looking south taken from the old school - the church hall built on the edge of the old Church yard is visible


At the south of the village is the Mitre Hotel adjacent to the small courthouse and cell.
