About 9 miles out on the TT Course you will pass this lovely little cottage, a fast left hand then past the cottage then another very fast right hand towards the Black Dub and up towards Glen Helen.

Only another 96 days to go until TT 2015 🙂

Just past Ballaugh Bridge on the TT Course and tucked in the hedge is this memorial to two quite famous people that will definitely be remembered in TT and MGP History.

The bottom plaque is dedicated to staunch TT and MGP Marshall Gwen Crellin who lived just passed Ballaugh Bridge on the TT Course, Gwen come rain, hail or shine would be outside her house before every TT and MGP practice or race.  Gwen passed away in 2007 aged 89 years and this plaque is dedicated to her.

* N.B The plaque was originally presented to Gwen by the MGP Supporters Club in 1997 and was fixed to the front of Gwens house, it is now displayed across the road from Gwens house as part of this memorial.

The top bronze plaque  is dedicated to Gary Dickinson 1934 to 1993, Gary was better known as “The Mighty Atom” during the TT, because of his slight stature Gary had to carry a lead block fastened to his motorbike frame under his left boot so he could reach the minimum racing weight.

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

I have literally drove past this lovey plaque so many times and have been unable to find it (located on the front wall between the cream and blue houses on image 2).

The sandstone (Knox) plaque says that King Edward VII, Queen Alexandra and Her Royal Highness Princess Victoria passed through this Kella Abbey Quarter in 1902 (The exact date was August 25th 1902).

Kella Mills is a few yards down the road as can be seen in image 2,  approximately 300 years ago it was a Flour Mill and Porridge Mill but more lately a Manx Whisky Distillery (Glen Kella).  Archibald Knox lived right next door and worked from his home circa 1900/04 – Info from Juan Vernon’s “Heritage Trail”

The images were captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
