St George's 1761



 
1761-80. By a local builder during the period 1761 to 1780.  He was sent to Whitehaven, then in Cumberland, to copy the church there. The interior was much restored in 1910 when the upper galleries were removed and the church extended. [JB]

The church was meant to replace the ageing St Mathew's, buily by by Bishop Hildesley, but took some 20 years to complete due to financial depression following act of revestment.

It was St James in Whitehaven that provided the initial design.

The church was lengthened by some 5m in 1909 when a new chancel was built.

See account in IoM Charities, 1831
