This is one of my favourite churches on the Island.

This quaint little church is dedicated to St. Adamnan and is one of the oldest churches on the Island with the walls dating back to the 12th century.

This Post is for Eleanor and Michael Wasley.

(Manx National Heritage catalogued Cross No. 73)

The most spectacular of all of the crosses in the church yard of St. Adamnan’s, still stands in it’s original position at the south side of the church. It stands at 5 feet high (not over 9 feet as described on many websites!) and more than 3 feet across and has a large equal limbed 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.

Seen here at the Bungalow at the foot of Snaefell Mountain.

And what a day for the passengers of the Visiting Cruise Ship ‘Adonia’ to go up to the top of Snaefell Mountain.

This quaint little church in Lonan 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 image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

I had a lovely walk around Lonan today and come across this secret wood which was lit up buy Bluebells and Whitebells.

This tiny but beautifully kept Church is one of the best kept secrets of Old Lonan, as you can see in the image there is enough room to get about twenty to thirty people in and the Chapel would be full!!

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 18mm and using a Nikon SB-800 Speedlight.
A beautiful, tranquil and peaceful place.
