This little Church in Ballaugh always intrigues me with its leaning entrance pillars, I have heard so many myths about the reasons why the pillars are leaning that I just don’t really know what to believe now! Can anyone enlighten me?

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 18mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

"Christchurch" The Dhoon in Glenmona - © Peter KilleyThis little church that is situated off the main coast road from Laxey to Ramsey at Glenmona is so hidden in the trees that you cannot usually see it as you drive past.

As winter is now virtually upon us and the leaves have relatively dissapeared from the trees, I spotted this little church today and had to picture it!

According to Frances Coakley’s “Manx Notebook” The first foundation stone was laid in June 1854 and the Church was consecrated in Decemeber 1855.

This tiny but beautifully kept Church is one of the best kept secrets of Old Lonan, as you can see in the image there is enough room to get about twenty to thirty people in and the Chapel would be full!!

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 18mm and using a Nikon SB-800 Speedlight.
A beautiful, tranquil and peaceful place.
