Cregneash 'true to the memory' of former residents

80th anniversary of Harry Kelly's Cottage marked

Authenticity is the key to preserving the Isle of Man's heritage and culture - that's the view of the Chairman of the Trustees of the Manx Museum and National Trust.

Jonathan Hall was speaking at a special celebration marking the 80th anniversary of the Island's folk museum yesterday (10 June).

The feature piece of Cregneash village, Harry Kelly's Cottage was first opened to the public in 1938.

Mr Hall says it's important the appearance of the open-air museum remains true to its past.
