Old Kirk Lonan Church

This is one of my favourite churches on the Island.

This quaint little church is dedicated to St. Adamnan and is one of the oldest churches on the Island with the walls dating back to the 12th century.

Some Mothers Son – Kirk Patrick Church

This is not one of my normal Isle of Man Images but I thought it may be of interest to some!

I visited this grave today at Holy Trinity Church, in Kirk Patrick Village, hence the little flower.

This grave is that of the unknown man whose body was washed ashore on the coast close to the Church. The grave has a white marble curb and headstone which was provided by the generosity of Mrs Florrie Forde, who had a holiday beach cottage at the nearby Niarbyl.

The headstone bears the faded words ‘Some Mothers Son’

The cross bears the inscription – ‘British – Unidentified – Interred – 27th Feb 1918′.

And the wording on the marble surround at the front of the grave reads; ‘Erected by Florrie Forde 1927′.

The Wheel Head Cross – Kirk Lonan Old Church

This Post is for Eleanor and Michael Wasley.

(Manx National Heritage catalogued Cross No. 73)

The most spectacular of all of the crosses in the church yard of St. Adamnan’s, still stands in it’s original position at the south side of the church. It stands at 5 feet high (not over 9 feet as described on many websites!) and more than 3 feet across and has a large equal limbed Celtic wheel head cross that is almost completely covered in interlacing, knot work and plait work designs. This stone dates from the 9th or even the 10th century.

Ramsey Town Shining By The Sea

What a fantastic paint job and artwork finish on this wonderful old Victorian building (the former Belvedere Hotel) on Mooragh Promenade in Ramsey.

Also look at the detail in the slates and the crown on this amazing turret.

The Words above the windows on the turret read; ‘O Ramsey Town Shining by the Sea, Here’s a Health’.…  You know the rest of the song I am sure :-)
