I went into the graveyard have a look at the old grave of Bishop Wilson and got a bit carried away with my camera (as you do). This time I somehow managed to avoid the four sheep and one ram in the graveyard ð Feel free to make any comments either on this website by clicking the “Write comment” below or by logging onto my Facebook Page enjoy – Click on the image for a larger view.
This church was built in 1835 (the former church dated from the 12th century) The building is of plain cruciform design and is built in brown stone with a large square tower. There are five Bishops buried in the graveyard, Bishops Wilson, Hildesley, Mason, Crigan and Duesbury. I actually went into the graveyard to have a look at these graves and I kid you not I was chased out by two sheep, one of which had long horns.

A fantastic venue for a photographer to capture images of the many interesting aspects of the Isle of Man in History, this graveyard contains so many interesting graves and tombstones and offers us photographers a fantastic opportunity to capture so many dramatic effects depending on light and weather conditions etc… This particular image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5 Feel free to make any comments either on this website by clicking the “Write comment” below or by logging onto my Facebook page www.facebook.com/manxscenes Click on the image for a larger view.
