St. Andrew’s Church in Andreas.

During the 1939 – 1945 war the original tower was reduced in height by about half because of the R.A.F airfield nearby (Click Here to see an old image of the Church with its taller tower).

The war memorial has recently been renovated and it is now a terracotta colour.

Blackhawks have set up a sky diving facility at Jurby Airfield over TT 2014 and they will be using this aircraft.

It has been a little while since Jurby Tower has been used as a proper Aircraft Control Tower!

This small aircraft sits alone at Andreas Airfield in the North of the Island.

The airfield was opened in 1941 as a Fighter Command Airfield for the RAF.

The Airfield is now operated by Andreas Gliding Club and by Microlight enthusiasts.
