St Luke’s Church

Brandywell Road, Baldwin, IM4 5EZ

Built, on top of the older Abbon Keeill, this tiny Church has the most spectacular views over the Manx countryside. This very isolated Church, designed by John Welch, was completed in 1836, replacing a 1700s church. In common with a few churches on the Island, the interior can be converted to a school room.  The elegant church organ, came from a private house, Kentraugh and renovated in 1979. Thomas Cowell, writes about its instillation, in his book “Baldwin, My Valley”. The pulpit was originally in Kirk Braddan Church. An early embroidery of “Desiderata” hangs by the entrance.

An enactment of 1422, allows this Church to be used as a sanctuary, “for murderers fleeing their victim’s relatives”.
