The Eighteenth Century Manx Scene

Runs until Tuesday, 27 June 2023 (See all dates)

10:00 - 16:00
Jurby Church, Jurby, IM7 3AU

An exhibition about Manx Life and events in the years before Jurby Church was built.

Celebrating 200 years since the building was completed in 1819, this exhibition sets the  the scene for the dramatic events which were to unfold throughout the years of the building of Jurby Church through to its consecration in 1829. During these years, there were riots when a tithe on potatoes was proposed, a bishop was driven away, the unpopular rule of the Athols was brought to an end and the sovereign became Lord of Man.

Work on a new church began in 1813 and took five years to complete and it has taken almost that long for The Friends of Jurby Church to obtain the various permissions to carry out the urgent repairs which are now being undertaken. The south side and roof are almost restored and work has begun on the East and North sides. The Friends are raising funds to repair the west wall and tower and also to display newly discovered stones from around the old keeill and from the Old Church.

The famous Jurby Church ’tea and cake’ is on sale over TT until 10th June. Tea, coffee, homemade cake all £1.00.

Best value on the Island. Best views on the Island from this iconic place.
