This quaint little church was formerly attached to the Parish church of Kirk Braddan but now Marown, this church was built in 1836 on the site of a Celtic church called “Keeill Abban”, an ancient Celtic cross has also been built into the west gable section of the building which was also used as a school up to 1871.

Behind this chapel and up the hill is the ancient site of Tynwald which was held there as far back as 1429 and is now marked by a circle of stones 🇮🇲

The Clock Tower and remaining altar window and walls of the former St Peter’s Church in Market Place in Peel.

A fire in 1958 made the building unsafe and it was demolished shortly after, only the outer walls, alter window and some tomb stones and the clock tower remain.

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.
