Walked with Henry to the Nunnery; cool groves of young trees and many fine old ones. General Goulding [sic Goldie-Taubman] has built a handsome house near the site of the old nunnery, on which stands a modern house. The old convent bell, hung outside, is used as a house-bell.' (Dorothy Wordsworth, Journal of a Tour in the Isle of Man, 1828, M 10561)

This mounted lithographic view is part of Sarah Jametta Crigan's sketchbook. 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).
