Long Description:
The Presbytery next to the Catholic Church in Ramsey like the Church, was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott and both were completed in 1910.

There are stars throughout the interior of the Church and are a tribute to the 'Star of Sea' (visit link)

The frieze art on this building is a Bas-relief panel above the ornate oak wood front door to Thie yn Taggayrt (The Priest's House) and depicts a star shine above the sea on a shield surmounted by a crown.

The Presbytery is built of local stone, but has a roof of rust-coloured tiles. The dormer window and steep pitch of the roof give the building a rustic cottage style however the very tall chimney stacks are rather incongruous.
