Isle of Man
Often called Dhoon Church, this is actually in Glen Mona
is a small simple church which could be of indeterminate age set among
the trees. It was built in 1854 by the same architect who built Christ Church in Laxey.
I was attracted to stop by the round arches of the west door with a round window above.
Inside it is equally simple with whitewashed walls and a beam ceiling. damp is a problem and the paint is peeling off in places. Pews are dark stained wood. The hexagonal stone font is just inside the west door.
The chancel has wooden tablets on the side walls with the Lordís Prayer, Ten Commandments and the Creed. The simple altar has an embroidered frontispiece.
The central east window has an image of Christ.
The tall round topped windows in the nave have plain glass with coloured roundels with images of fish, flowers, cross, Viking boat and the three legs of Mann.
