Rose Cottage, Regaby and the Hand of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley.

The interesting aspect of this beautiful Manx Cottage is the gate pillar and the cast hand of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley. Measured from floor to the tip of the hand it measures 7’11″ which is exactly the same height of the Manx Giant.

Apparently Captain George Burrows, had a Market Garden and a coal yard in Parliament Street in Ramsey and he lived in Rose Cottage. He employed ‘The Manx Giant’ and he had the hands made which he put on the gatepost. He (Capt George Burrows) also gave some items belonging to Arthur Caley to the Manx Museum in Douglas.

Passing Raymond Caley’s old shop at Sulby Cross Roads today I couldn’t help myself stopping and snapping a few pics of the store, Raymond’s lovely memorial plaque and that old hand made open and closed sign that Raymond changed each morning and night. Raymond was an absolute Gentleman who I loved chatting to – RIP Raymond “Gone Fishing”
