Chibber Air (1) – Lonan


Chibber Air, usually translated as Gold Well.  On Croit ny Howe, Clay Head, Lonan.

…the “gold” of the Manx well may have been suggested by the colour of scum on its water, as ‘brass’ was in the case of the Brass Well, Mevagissey, Cornwall. The word, however, is susceptible of other interpretations.
