Dating from the C16th, St Peter’s Church in the centre of Peel was built as a Chapel of Ease for the Cathedral of St German on St Patrick’s Isle, after a boat carrying a coffin for burial was wrecked. When the cathedral fell into disrepair in the C17th and C18th, St Peter’s became the parish church.
There were plans to rebuild the old cathedral in 1870 but it was decided that it would be too great a task. Instead a new church, “St German’s”:https://www.silvertraveladvisor.com/review/attraction/193914-review-cathedral-church-of-st-german , was built, which would replace St Peter’s. This was consecrated as a cathedral in 1980.
St Peter’s Church was no longer needed and much of the building was destroyed by a fire in 1958, just leaving the tower and part of the east wall standing.
The remains of the church surrounded by its graveyard are on Castle Street. It is a short detour from the centre of Peel on the way to St Patrick’s Isle and is wortth a quick look when passing. The nearest post code is IM5 1AL and grid reference SC 243 841.
