this beautiful church smacks of Falkland Islands charm. it's charming, quaint and definitely worth a visit when you're in Stanley. And if the biting wind is too cold, it's a great place to warm up. We walked to the church from the ship dock.

Small brick church with an arch made out whale bone, If you are in the Falklands and near I would take fifteen minutes and visit the church. How often do you visit the Falklands?

If you're here, you've probably been to Antarctica and seen whales but these bones are from two big brutes. Blue whale jaws. Bones from the earth's largest ever mammal. Be humble. We nearly hunted it to extinction.

An interesting story and amazing to see these whalebones which have been preserved over time due to weather damage
