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.

This famous Pub on the TT Course also holds a little history of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley who it appears lived for a short time at the Glen Mooar Inn which was on the site of the now present Hotel.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

High up in the hills above the Sulby Valley at an area known as Slieaumonagh, which is roughly between Snaefell Mountain and Slieau Managh Mountain on the track to Block Eairy reservoir lies the remains of these beautiful Manx Crofters cottages, there must be approximately eight derelict stone cottages up there, which must really have been a small village!

I am interested to learn more about these derelict cottages, please drop me a mail via my contact page or feel free to write a comment on this page regarding this subject if you can help.

The images were all captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
