If Onchan is a suburb of Douglas, the area around Lonan old church very definitely is not. Here you are out in the Manx countryside and even the sound of a single car can be a disturbance. The old church - replaced by a new church in the 19th century - stands isolated and partly in ruin. The west end, probably dating from the 12th century, is the ruined part while the east end has been restored. There are a few cross fragments in a shelter near the church - many Manx crosses have been moved inside buildings to safeguard them from the elements - but in the churchyard Lonan's remarkable 9th century Celtic wheel-headed cross stands where it has always done.
Although Onchan is now effectively a Douglas suburb, the original village grew up around the church and nearby are a few of the older buildings such as Molly Carrooin's Cottage dating back about 300 years and the Welch House. Inside the church itself are a number of Manx crosses, this (along with Braddan) being one of the more accessible places to see them if you are staying in Douglas. The two illustrated are a (probably) 10th century wheel-headed cross-slab with dog-headed figures and another (probably) from later in the same century. (All of the Onchan crosses are quite difficult to photograph.) Also in the village is the Church Hall of 1898 by the Arts & Crafts Movement architect M. H. Baillie Scott.
