Parish of Maughold

Maughold is a village and parish in the Isle of Man. It is named for Maughold, the island's patron saint.

The village of Maughold lies on the coast some three miles from Ramsey, with mountainous terrain on its landward side. The parish includes most of the North Barrule, the second highest hill on the island. A proportion of the land in the area has been in Manx National Heritage ownership since 1965.[citation needed] Kirk Maughold (the parish church for the area) contains a number of historically important Celtic crosses, suggesting that it was the site of an early Christian monastery. Maughold Head to the east of the village is the easternmost point on the island and has a lighthouse.
