Ballaugh Village, 1868

Plan Ballaugh Village, 1868

The old Parish Church is some considerable distance along the road exiting north but the village developed along the Peel - Ramsey road just after the bridge (famous for views during the TT races) - the new parish church is just off the map along the Cronk road - the then new Wesleyan chapel is shown on the edge of the village, the older chapel on the east on the road heading south to Ravensdale was then a hall - recent economies have forced the sale of the impressive chapel and the old hall pressed back into service.

A photograph of the village from the 1920's show little development
