Harry Kelly's Cottage, Cregneash Folk Village
Cregneash (or Cregneish) is a remote village situated on Mull Hill in the Isle of Man. Much of the village forms a "Living Museum" (The National Folk Museum) dedicated to the preservation of the traditional Manx ways of life. Officially opened in 1938, the Cregneash Folk Village shows the typical way of life of a small Manx upland crofting community in the 19th and early 20th century.

Harry Kelly's cottage in the centre of the village typifies a Manx villager's home, where weaving or knitting often took place in the living area.
