The second image shows the colourful Ballacraine Farm which is always so brightly decorated and really depicts a true Manx Farm Cottage.

    I don’t think it was George Formby who drove into the pub at Ballacraine – it was another rider in the film “No Limit”. It was memorable for the comment of the race commentator, when he announced that a rider had gone into the pub: he checked his watch and said “It’s alright – they’re open!”.
