Cregneash

Cregneash
Cregneash is an isolated village set on the Mull Hills above Spanish Head. Much of Cregneash village is part of the Living Museum owned by the Manx National to preserve the Manx traditions. Harry Kelly's cottage was the first to be restored and opened to the public in 1938. Since then many more sites within the village and surrounding area have been added to the museum. The Manx National Trust now owns over 300 acres and over 10 buildings in the area. The villagers play their part, living the traditional way which people have in the village for hundreds of years. Farms are maintained with horsepower, farming small fields of oats, rye, barley and wheat and much of the livestock roam free.

Traditional crafts such as weaving and trades like fishing are practised and used in everyday life and the small village is self sufficient with people proud to be Manx and speak the language. Until the start of the 1900's, the village had not been affected by technology and although most live a traditional life, there are still a few homes with villagers living modern village life.

Cregneash is an enchanting trip back through time and well worth a visit as there are modern tourist attractions in the village too, such as the Sound Visitor Centre.
