All posts for the month November, 2012

This stained glass window inside St. Peter’s Church in Onchan depicts Maughold Parish Church and the “Maughold Parish Cross” which is a 14th century St. Bees sandstone carving and is one of the earliest representations of the 3 Legs of Mann (apart from the 3 Legs inscribed on the Pommel of the 12th Century Manx Sword of State) it is also interesting to note which direction the 3 Legs are pointing!

I have taken a number of images of the stained glass windows in St. Peter’s and I will add them to Manxscenes.com over the coming months.

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6

This beautiful Church in Onchan was built in 1833 and is dedicated to St. Peter

A little bit of trivia;  The rain drip stones (I am sure that terminology is wrong) above the louvered openings in the Bell Tower are constructed with headstones and if you look up at them you can see names and inscriptions on them!

Spotted the Dublin registered Tug “Deilginis” sitting off the Tower of Refuge in Douglas Bay last week.

I am pretty sure she was accompanying the Excalibur jack-up barge that was also sheltering in the Bay.

This former Hotel has now been converted into luxury apartments.

The building stands high above Port St Mary Breakwater and I am sure the views from the top apartment will be stunning.
