Manx Churches and Chapels

Join me on my journey to picture every Church and Chapel on the Isle of Man.

St Runius Church Marown

This was once the Parish church and was situated in about the centre of the Parish. The original building was from approximately 1200 AD and was enlarged in 1754 AD.

Three bishops are possibly buried in the graveyard here; Lonnan, Connaghan, and Runius.

This quaint little Church has no mains electricity and relies on candlelight.

The foundation stone to this lovely church was laid in 1854 and the building was completed in 1855 but was not consecrated until May 1856.

The church was built on land provided by Mr Geo. W. Dumbbell, chairman of the mining company, which forms part of the garden belonging to to the Mines Captain’s House (now the Mines Tavern). The building which became known as “The Miners Church”, cost £950 to which the Great Laxey Mining Company donated £200.

I am feeling rather honoured to have my images used and my name printed on a full Isle of Man Stamp collection showcasing all 17 churches of the Manx Telecom Parish Walk.

The stamps are being released on the 15th June 2016 and it has been a pleasure working with everyone at IOM Stamps and Coins to fulfil this project.
