St. Andrew’s Church in Andreas.

During the 1939 – 1945 war the original tower was reduced in height by about half because of the R.A.F airfield nearby (Click Here to see an old image of the Church with its taller tower).

The war memorial has recently been renovated and it is now a terracotta colour.

I have added an image of this old Control Tower before onto manxscenes.com but I liked the sky and cloud formation on this image that I took yesterday.

As you can imagine this Control Tower was a constant hive of activity during the Second World War.
