The Isle of Man Natural History and Antiquities Society will continue its winter program with a lecture on one of the oldest buildings on the island this Saturday.

Fenella Logan will give a presentation entitled ‘Maughold Parish Church: a structural analysis’ in the Amphitheater of the Manx Museum, Douglas, at 2:30 p.m.

Ms Logan says: “Maughold’s church fabric has a long history, influenced by socio-religious, political and economic changes. A timeline of the evolution of the church over its 1,000 (plus) years of existence is offered.

“The proposal was developed through a thorough structural analysis of the building, considering how its fixed features relate to each other, reviewing all available sources, and studying remaining architectural fragments.”

As with all IoMNHAS presentations, attendees are advised to arrive early to ensure a seat. The lecture will be followed by tea and biscuits. Non-members attending the conference will be asked to make a small donation.

The society’s winter program will continue on Saturday, February 26, with Jude Dicken, Andrew Johnson and Laura McCoy of Manx National Heritage, giving a presentation titled “Digital Collections: Newspapers, Wildlife and the Historic Environment”.
