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.

Whilst out and about today I captured this image of Kirk Braddan new Cemetery on the Braddan Road, the Mortuary Chapel is in classic Manx style designed by John Jefferson and was opened circa 1843, John Jefferson also designed what is now Joseph Bucknalls in upper Church Street and the former Methodist School in Peel by Albany Road Corner (Thanks to local Historian Peter Kelly for all his help and information)

The Cemetery is such a wealth of Manx history and the graves of two famous Manx people spring to mind, Archibald Knox and Henry Bloom Noble, incidentally my Grandad and Grandma Killey are also buried in this graveyard.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 20mm, converted into sepia to give a “Ye olde World” look and finally cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
