“Christchurch” The Dhoon in Glenmona

"Christchurch" The Dhoon in Glenmona - © Peter KilleyThis little church that is situated off the main coast road from Laxey to Ramsey at Glenmona is so hidden in the trees that you cannot usually see it as you drive past.

As winter is now virtually upon us and the leaves have relatively dissapeared from the trees, I spotted this little church today and had to picture it!

According to Frances Coakley’s “Manx Notebook” The first foundation stone was laid in June 1854 and the Church was consecrated in Decemeber 1855.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 18mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
