Douglas to see sites important on the Knox timeline. Many of the buildings no longer exist but one got a feel for the layout of Douglas when Knox was young by the use of an 1866 map and old photographs. In all 11 sites were visited following the Knox Story from living on South Quay to his time at Douglas School of Art via the sites of St. Barnabas Church School, Old and New St Matthew’s churches, approximate site of temporary (1880 to 1884) School of Art, blue plaque at 70 Athol Street (although blue plaque had been temporarily removed due to renovation work), the sunken garden on the Promenade opened in 2014, site of the former Douglas Grammar School and the Douglas School of Art (now the Kensington Road Youth Arts Centre).
