Cregneash Village Folk Museum
Cregneash is a living illustration of a farming and crofting community in the 19th and early 20th century.
You will see tiny thatched cottages dotted around the village, plough horses, loghtan sheep, shorthorn cows, pigs and Manx cats. Nestling under Meayll Hill and overlooking the Calf of Man, this picturesque village was the first open air folk museum in the British Isles.
The village now forms a centre for traditional farming practices and skills. Visitors can see demonstrations with horse drawn equipment, thatching, spinning, weaving, wood turning, blacksmithing and a range of skills in the growing and preparation of food.
