Laxey Christ Church
Laxey Christ Church
The population of Laxey increased considerably with the development of the mines in the late 1840's but the nearest church was some 3 miles away.

Christchurch was built to the design of Ewan Christian on land donated by G.W.Dumbell on a hill besides the new road from Douglas to Laxey. It was constructed by his Mining Company at a cost of 950 and was consecrated on 27th May 1856.

The design is described as 'early English' without any great ornamentation.
