St. Peter's Church, Cregneash, Isle of Man

The little church of St. Peter’s now forms part of the Manx Folk Heritage Museum at Cregneash.

It began life in the mid-1870s as a chapel of ease, as the nearest church was that in Rushen three miles away.

All the villagers gave their labour for free and the building ended up costing just £150. It doubled up as the village school.

Although the village is, officially, now a Living Museum it is still a village and the Church is still a functioning church, holding a service every Sunday.
