This beautiful stained glass window is the first thing you see as you enter into the porch of St. Peter’s Church in Cregneash Village 🇮🇲

It depicts a Manx Loaghtan sheep, spring daffodils, primroses, foxgloves, bluebells and lilies and a little robin also 🇮🇲

This gorgeous window is dedicated to Harry Quirk 1934 to 1997.

Welcome to Cow Harbour on the Calf of Man.

This is the landing place on the Calf of Man where farm stock was usually landed, sheep were brought by boat but cattle were usually swum across the Sound to this inlet.

I just love this lovely old thatched cottage in Cregneash Village.

Life must have been so wonderful living in this village in years gone bye and no doubt very hard.
