Another well restored traditional Manx Cottage by Manx National Heritage at Cregneash.
Plain and simple, this is from inside Harry Kelly’s small white washed bedroom.
The little ornament hanging at the top left of the image is a Willow Bumbee Cage and you read more about this cage by Clicking Here (Image and information by John ‘Dog’ Callister)
The aedicule (doorcase) came from the Market Inn Pub in Chapel lane in Douglas and was preserved by erecting it at the bottom of Crellins Hill which is the bottom entrance to the Manx Museum.
Click Here to see the aedicule when it was still in situ at the Market Inn.
Another different image from my walk around Castle Rushen, this one shows the rusty Bell Tower on the Castle and the Bell still displays the wording – Earl of Derby 1729.
Inside Harry Kelly’s Cottage at Cregneash Village.
There is a picture of Harry on the mantel piece and the lovely tapestry above his picture simply states ‘Prepare To Meet Thy God’
