Manx Churches and Chapels

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

Very probably the subject of Isle of Man myth (which to be fair I love) It is better know as the Vampires Grave. I remember my late Dad telling me about it many years ago and I quite like taking the odd picture of it now and again.

Well worth a look at the grave if you are passing Malew Church.

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.

The Clock Tower and remaining altar window and walls of the former St Peter’s Church in Market Place in Peel.

A fire in 1958 made the building unsafe and it was demolished shortly after, only the outer walls, alter window and some tomb stones and the clock tower remain.

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.
