Description: Jurby sits inland on the north west of the Isle of Man (NGR 23540 49830). Brown's guide to the Isle of Man : with seventy illustrations and a map [13th ed.], 1892 says: “Jurby is situated about four miles from Andreas Village, in a westerly direction. … The cod fishery is somewhat extensively followed by the inhabitants along this coast, and from a part called the “Lhen Moar”, a little to the north of Jurby Head, excellent fish are procured. They are immediately cleaned and salted by the fishermen, and partially dried; but whether it is the quality of the fish, or any peculiarity in their modest curing, that has made them famous, is uncertain, but their fame is great.” (p.231.)
