We visit the northern parish of Kirk Andreas and hear about how the Murray family as Dukes of Atholl indulged in nepotism to hasten the advancement of George Murray in the church. However, our main focus is on the church building, and particularly on the very tall tower, designed by Ewan Christian and built in 1869. There was a slap-up supper for the workmen and a party for their wives and family on 6th and 7th January 1870 to celebrate the tower's inauguration.

Our story in Manx is a translation of one written by American horror writer H P Lovecraft about three robbers and The Terrible Old Man.
