St Adamnan's Church (also known as "Lonan Old Church" and originally known in Manx as Keeill ny-Traie, or "the chapel by the shore") is the former parish church of Lonan in the Isle of Man. The church is situated in an isolated position, surrounded by open farmland on the eastern coast of the island, between Groudle Glen and Baldrine. The eastern (and oldest) part of the church has been restored, but it is otherwise in a ruinous, though well-tended, condition. St Adamnan was the Abbot of Iona between 679 and 704.

  • One of the things that I like about Catholicism is the the sense of continuity. This small church in the middle of nowhere exemplifies this idea. There has been, according to the literature in this church, a place of worship here for over 1500 years, possibly longer. There is a celtic cross (see picture) in the grounds from last millennium. The church is very welcoming, if a little challenging to get to. Worth a visit!
  • Old semi derelict church, went exploring with the kids and found it.....
