Isle of Man - Maughold
Maughold is a village and parish in the Isle of Man. It is named
for Maughold, the island's patron saint.
The village of Maughold
lies on the coast some three miles from Ramsey, with mountainous
terrain on its landward side. The parish includes most of the North
Barrule, the second highest hill on the island. A proportion of the
land in the area has been in Manx National Heritage ownership since
1965. Kirk Maughold (the parish church for the area) contains a
number of historically important Celtic crosses, suggesting that it
was the site of an early Christian monastery.
Maughold Head to the east of the village is the easternmost point on
the island and has a lighthouse.
