The church was constructed as a result of a bequest in the will of Henry Bloom Noble, his trustees provided land at the junction of St Ninian’s Road and Ballaquayle Road, and money for the construction of this beautiful church which was completd in 1913 and consecrated as a parish church the following year.

The church is constructed of local slate and its tower dominates the landscape and indeed the skyline of Douglas.

Whilst out for a walk yesterday (28th Dec 2011) I could not help to capture this image of the church whilst the sun was out.

The church was constructed as a result of a bequest in the will of Henry Bloom Noble, his trustees provided land, at the junction of St Ninian’s Road and Ballaquayle Road, and money for the construction of this beautiful church which was completd in 1913 and consecrated as a parish church the following year.

The architect was W.D. Caroe and the church is constructed of local slate and its tower dominates the landscape and indeed the skyline of Douglas.

The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
