The White Lady of Glencrutchery

The White Lady of Glencrutchery

Glencrutchery, in the parish of Conchan on the Isle of Man, is the site of a Keeill and Burial Ground. Graves have been found and traces of cremation, showing that as in other instances, the Keeill was set on the site of a Bronze-age burial.

Some large quartz boulders there have given it the name of the ‘White Lady.’
