A poor village, of about thirty houses, situated in a deep glen, a fine bay on one side, and partly surrounded on the other by high and steep mountains.' (Nathaniel Jefferys, A Descriptive and Historical Account of the Isle of Man, 1809, M 00904)

This mounted lithographic view is part of the sketchbook of Sarah Jametta Crigan (Mrs Hodgkinson), the daughter of Bishop Crigan (1784-1813) and author of 'Memoirs of Major Charles Crigan' (her brother) Liverpool, 1864. The lithograph is cut from T. Ashe's sketchbook, 1825 (the series engraved by Haghe) annotated in the same hand and ink as signature on cover (1825).
