In Maughold Parish churchyard lie the remains of three earlier buildings (keeils) which indicate that there was an important centre of Christianity here which was founded before the end of the 7th Century.

What a lovely building which I have never spotted before.

Pretty sure it is private ownership now and not part of the Church.

Bride is one of the three parishes on the Isle of Man which have Rectories (Andreas, Ballaugh and Bride) all remaining parishes have Vicarages.

I have just read a lovely old Manx book called Legends of a Lifetime by the late George E. Quayle and he makes mention that in 1890 the family of a nearby resident of the Church (Mr Hicks) installed 8 Tubular Bells in the tower of this fine old church in his memory.

George E. Quayle mentions that his parents were married in the church at a similar date and the peal of tubular bells played ‘Abide With Me’ on their wedding day, apparently since then the bells have never played a tune since, apart from the odd jingle on a Sunday and the solemn minute bell for funerals.

I personally did not realise that ‘Abide With Me’ was a wedding hymn but I did think that this is a lovely story worth sharing.

Sadly today this fine old church is now on the open market for sale, a sign of the times indeed.

This stone-built, Norse-Celtic chapel is dedicated to St. Michael and dates from around the 12th century.  It is now consists of just four walls and a bell turret.

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Whilst out for a walk yesterday (28th Dec 2011) I could not help to capture this image of the church whilst the sun was out.

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 architect was W.D. Caroe and the church is constructed of local slate and its tower dominates the landscape and indeed the skyline of Douglas.

The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
