A is for Albert's tower, B is for Bride's bunkers, C is for...

A Manx A-B-C-Dery; an alphabetical tour of the Isle of Man takes readers round twenty-six Manx attractions, one for each letter of the alphabet.  Some of them are famous, some little known, most are quirky and all fascinating.

For example, Orrisdale was once called Four Towns, but no-one seems to know why.  The sculpture of the Viking chess players in Ramsey represent real people.  And the Plains of Heaven inspired so famous a painting that it had its own PR representative.

And there's a bonus!  Numbers one to ten get a look in as well.

A Manx A-B-C-Dery; an alphabetical tour of the Isle of Man is written by Sara Goodwins, published by Loaghtan Books, retails at £5.95, and is available in bookshops and gift shops throughout the island.
