I am feeling rather honoured to have my images used and my name printed on a full Isle of Man Stamp collection showcasing all 17 churches of the Manx Telecom Parish Walk.

The stamps are being released on the 15th June 2016 and it has been a pleasure working with everyone at IOM Stamps and Coins to fulfil this project.

Situated in the Parish of Kirk Malew this quaint little Church was built in 1772 and is attached to the parish Church of Kirk Malew.

Originally this church was built to accommodate about 200 people and was intended to provide a more convenient Chapel of Ease together with a parish school for those from the outlying districts!

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 went into the graveyard have a look at the old grave of Bishop Wilson and got a bit carried away with my camera (as you do).

This time I somehow managed to avoid the four sheep and one ram in the graveyard 🙂

This church was built in 1835 (the former church dated from the 12th century) The building is of plain cruciform design and is built in brown stone with a large square tower.

There are five Bishops buried in the graveyard, Bishops Wilson, Hildesley, Mason, Crigan and Duesbury.

I actually went into the graveyard to have a look at these graves and I kid you not I was chased out by two sheep, one of which had long horns.

A fantastic venue for a photographer to capture images of the many interesting aspects of the Isle of Man in History, this graveyard contains so many interesting graves and tombstones and offers us photographers a fantastic opportunity to capture so many dramatic effects depending on light and weather conditions etc…

This particular image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5
