This cottage up at the Point of Ayre is a bit run down, anyone know what it’s past is?  I seem to remember someone telling me it used to be a Smithy’s workshop!

*Edit (10.9.14) I have been informed by Mr Eric Corkish who is a Northern Historian that the Cottage was called ‘Goats Cottage’ as the occupants used to herd goats. – Thanks Eric

I love this little Cottage situated on the road at Cranstal in Bride, and the red roses around the door are fantastic.

A beautiful example of a traditional Manx thatched cottage in Cranstal in Bride.

The stones that are protruding below the thatch would have been the tie off points for the ropes that would have then secured the thatch prior to today’s new securing methods..

Perhaps someone could tell us what the protruding slates on the chimney stacks are for as I have seen these on many thatched cottages and wondered what they are for?
