The Abbey restaurant
Quote from the Abbey Restaurant website:- '"Built in the 18th Century by Deemster Moore using the ancient Abbey monastery ruins as a convenient "quarry", the senior Manx judge built himself a "fine country house". From the 1770s to the 1830s, Deemster Moore's house and its constituent outbuildings were leased to a series of tenants.

"Following this The Abbey was put up for sale, and was later owned by a Reverend W. Ward who planned to build a 'splendid new church' on the site. However, this plan seemingly fell through, with the building instead housing a boarding school for young ladies, ran by Miss Bell Anne Stowell and her sister Ellen Stowell in 1847."
