This is a very ancient church which was once very important being near Castletown which was the capital of The Island until it moved to Douglas in the 19th C. Its antiquity can be seen in its place in an ancient sacred landscape, at a crossroads, next to a hill with a tumulus and monolith on it and across the crossroad from a field with two standing stones and a well between them. There is a story that the 'cup' used in communion was once used by fairies to drug unsuspecting island inhabitants and whisk them away until someone clever threw the wine away rather than drink it.

The Rosary Cemetery, laid out on five acres of a former market garden, was the first non-denominational cemetery in England, and was licensed by the Bishop of Norwich in 1821 when the first burial took place. It was probably very beautiful in its heyday, but it was sad to look at this morning; rudimentary pathways have been mowed to allow some access, but as you'll see from these photos a great deal of the cemetery is overgrown and most of the headstones are in an advanced state of disrepair. (having said that, a funeral cortege entered as I was leaving! Just hope they managed to find their way out again...)

Not the easiest place to find - it is located up a small road which leads to the local allotments!

In the 16th century, a stone quarry was opened there, from which many of Liverpool's public buildings were cut. In 1825, the quarry was exhausted, and a young architect, John Foster Jr, was comissioned to design a new cemetery, that became the city's main cemetery until 1936. The place is now a romantic public park, with a spring under the trees, a Greek Revival oratory and many old tombs, at the foot of the gigantic cathedral.

My collaborate project with lllllllllllll/ All paintings are based on the old decayed photos of real people found in eastern european graveyards. We selected the ones that have the most "lovecraftian" atmosphere and remind of "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" and "Silent Hill".
