This stone-built, Norse-Celtic chapel is dedicated to St. Michael and dates from around the 12th century. It is now consists of just four walls and a bell turret. The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

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. Click on the image for a larger view!
Over the course of time I will add an image and a brief resume of every Church and Chapel on the Isle of Man. If you have followed my photography website before you will probably know I absolutely love architecture, especially ecclesiastical architecture. To save you looking through every image on here, just type into the above ‘Search Manxscenes’ box the name of the Church or Chapel you are looking for and if I have captured it, you can view it. If I have missed a Church or Chapel, just drop me a mail via the Contact page 🙂 The images will be in no particular index and as already stated please make use of the search ‘Search Manxscenes’ box on this website. Keep checking back at this section from time to time. Enjoy… Peter
