Welcome to the James Family Web pages.

Hi, welcome to our little corner of the Internet. This site belongs to the James family, resident in Castletown, Isle of Man.

It is, as you probably suspected, another one of those family albums, with information about us and what we get up to. You'll find some pictures of bikes and model aeroplanes, as well as an interactive story from Rachel.

It's at www.iom.org because we live in the Isle of Man, famous for kippers, Manx cats and of course the TT Races. It's also well known for the quality of its beer which has to be brewed according to the Manx Beer Purity Laws. The 4 breweries on the Island mean that the majority of pubs serve proper cask ales and there are many guest beers available too so we are never short of choice.

So, we do live in a very attractive place, and as well as the family stuff, you will find some interesting information about our home.

If you'd like to know more about the island then why not take a tour of the Isle of Man.

The most recent addition to the site is a photo gallery, where you can see some of the pictures I've taken in and around Castletown. Buying a digital camera has reawakened my interest in photography so there will be lots of new pictures being added here. I may even go back and scan in some of my original black and white work from 30 years ago. You have been warned!
