A touch of Christmas at the tiny and beautiful St Adamnan’s Church in Lonan this morning, I reckon this must be one of the smallest churches on the Isle of Man?! 🇮🇲🇮🇲🇮🇲

I have also added a small video clip at the bottom of this post of St Adamnan’s including the external font and the Celtic Wheel Headed Cross which still stands in it’s original position at the south side of the church. It stands at 1.5m high.

St. Adamnan’s Church – Old Kirk Lonan.

A few Christmas display images and exterior images today at St. Adamnan’s Church 🇮🇲

This quaint little church in is one of the Islands oldest churches where the walls date back to possibly the 12th century on a site used since perhaps the first Christian missionaries on the Isle of Man.

The site is steeped in Manx History and the Celtic Wheel Head Cross that is almost completely covered in interlacing, knot work and plait work designs. This stone dates from the 9th or even the 10th century.
(Manx National Heritage catalogued Cross No. 73).
