An interior and exterior image of St. Adamnan’s Church.

This quaint little church in is one of the Islands oldest churches where the walls date back to possibly the 12th century on a site used since perhaps the first Christian missionaries on the Isle of Man.

The site is steeped in Manx History and if you look at the bottom right external image you can make out the 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.

(Manx National Heritage catalogued Cross No. 73)

Kerrowdhoo Farm at Cranstal, Bride, I am sure in it’s day it would have been a beautiful home/farmstead, but now sadly for sale for total re-development.

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.
