(Manx National Heritage catalogued Cross No. 73)

The most spectacular of all of the crosses in the church yard of St. Adamnan’s, still stands in it’s original position at the south side of the church. It stands at 5 feet high (not over 9 feet as described on many websites!) and more than 3 feet across and has a large equal limbed 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.

Set in a beautiful wooded valley by the River Dhoo. The churchyard is full of Georgian headstones and is a wonderful place for photographers and anyone with an interest in Manx history and architecture to visit.

Built on the site of an ancient keeill, the chapel of St John was first referred to in 1557, but was likely to have been built before this date. In 1847 the chapel was demolished and in 1849 this beautiful building was constructed from local granite and marble.

The first glimpse of sunshine for about a week on the Isle of Man so went for a walk up to Maughold Church.

The mountain is North Barrule and the ridge top left takes you over to Clagh Ouyr.

St Lukes Church in West Baldwin was formerly attached to the parish church of Kirk Braddan and now Marown, the 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.

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.
