This is the original church where St Peter’s Church in Onchan now stands.

In fact this little church was better known as Kirk Conchan and the origins of the old church which stood some 50 yards to the north of the present St. Peter’s church date back to the 12th Century.

This picture is depicted in a stained glass window in the present St. Peter’s Church in Onchan.

Two images of St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Hill Street in Douglas.

The first view is from Bucks Rd with it’s junction of Finch Rd.

The second view is a wide angle lens shot taken from within the grounds of this beautiful Church.

This fine building, whose foundation stone was laid in 1857, opened on the 4th August 1859 with great ceremony which caused not a little adverse comment from certain elements in the Methodist community.

Built to the design of Henry Clutton in French Gothic early 13th Century style. Interior decoration includes work by Peter Paul Pugin and Sir Giles Gilbert Scott.

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.

The Church of Ninian (now always called Trinian) stands beside the Douglas To Peel Road under Greeba Mountain.

It was built in the 12th century on the site of an ancient keeil and extensively altered in the 14th century.  A number of cross slabs are kept inside the ruined church on the site which has no public access.

The ruins are the scene of the story of the Buggane of St Trinian’s who persistently blew off the church roof as fast as it was rebuilt.  The village tailor undertook to make a pair of breeches as soon as the roof had been completed which would then drive the Buggane away.  The tailor was down to the last button but ran out of thread and whilst away the roof was again blown off.

The fine and very impressive interior of St German’s Cathedral in Peel.

Kirk German Cathedral is sited in Derby Road in Peel, and was opened in 1884 and finally consecrated by Archbishop Thompson, Bishop of York in 1894.

This chapel is reputed to be the smallest chapel on the Island, it was built as a school and later used as an Anglican mission, it is now sadly disused and in private ownership.

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.

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.
