Old Tynwald site panorama
Old Tynwald site panorama
A plaque reads "Site of Tynwald, holden at Killabane, 1428". Stitched together from three images, this view adds context to the location, which is far superior to the current one, sited as it is in the central valley at St John's, which in my view has become a bit of a circus. Were it to be returned here it would become once again an occasion of gravitas and solemnity.
