About Glenfaba (2011) 
Glenfaba extends down the middle section of the west coast of the Isle of Man, bordering Michael to the north and Rushen to the south. It is 'wrapped around' Peel on three sides, and is made up of the parishes of German and Patrick. Glenfaba contains Tynwald Hill, arguably the most important site on the Island, where the Manx parliament has a special open air session once a year, on July 5. The first recorded sitting on the hill at St John's was in 1417, and in 1979 the Manx people celebrated the centenary of what is widely considered to be the oldest parliamentary assembly in the world. David Anderson has represented the people of Glenfaba for the past ten years, following a family tradition after his father Ian held the position for 16 years, up to 1982. Walter Gilbey was the Glenfaba MHK in the years between the two Andersons.
