The Cumbrian Mountains as seen from Marine Drive on the Isle of Man this afternoon (15.30hrs). I have no idea which Mountains they are but it goes to show how close we are to our neighbours.

The church was constructed as a result of a bequest in the will of Henry Bloom Noble, his trustees provided land at the junction of St Ninian’s Road and Ballaquayle Road, and money for the construction of this beautiful church which was completd in 1913 and consecrated as a parish church the following year.

The church is constructed of local slate and its tower dominates the landscape and indeed the skyline of Douglas.
