Malew Church is one of the most ancient parish churches of the Isle of Man, dating from the establishment of the parochial system in perhaps the twelfth century and the Church remains officially the parish church for the parish of that name (which includes Derbyhaven, Ballasalla, Grenaby, Ballamodha and St Mark’s, but no longer Castletown).

A beautiful example of a traditional Manx thatched cottage in Cranstal in Bride.

The stones that are protruding below the thatch would have been the tie off points for the ropes that would have then secured the thatch prior to today’s new securing methods..

Perhaps someone could tell us what the protruding slates on the chimney stacks are for as I have seen these on many thatched cottages and wondered what they are for?

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.

St. Sanctain’s Church, Santon, stands on the site of an ancient Church or Keeill built around fifteen hundred years ago, It is strategically placed and commands a view of a large sweep of the sea looking towards the north-west coast of England and the mountains of North Wales. It can be seen by travellers sailing on the sea and flying by air as they come over the coastline towards Ronaldsway Airport. Thus for fifteen centuries the present Church, and its predecessors, have always been a landmark by sea, land and air. The present building was erected in 1774 and is a good example of an old Manx Church with its white walls and rectangular shape.

The original building was one of over a hundred Celtic Keeills, or “treen” churches, which were scattered all over the Island.

The images were all captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
