St John's

Description: “…a small scattered hamlet, loosely gathered about the pretty church of St. John, and its memorable appendage, the famous Tynwald Hill, and situated on the level summit of an extensive plateau, which slopes, on its northern edge, to the Rhenass river, which flows along a deep vale into the Neb, or Peel river, at a point a little to the west of the Mount, and, on its southern edge, sinking with equal abruptness into the low, swampy Curragh Glass (the grey bog).” (Brown's guide to the Isle of Man : with seventy illustrations and a map [13th ed.], 1892, p.129.)
