The next exhibition at Rushen Heritage Centre in Bridson Street, Port Erin showcases the history of Kentraugh Mill.
Earliest records for the old corn mill, located alongside the Kentraugh estate in Rushen, date back to 1506, when it was owned by Robert Qualtrough.
The material for the exhibition has been loaned by the Mill’s current owner, Elizabeth Sheen, and will be on display at Rushen Heritage Centre in Bridson Street, Port Erin, from Tuesday, May 3rd until Saturday, May 28th.
The Centre is open from 10am-4pm Tuesday to Saturday and entry is free.
The exhibition coincides with National Mills Weekend, which this year takes place on May 7th and 8th, and Kentraugh Mill will once again be open to the public for those two days, with donations going to the charity United Society Partners in the Gospel.
Doreen Moule, Chair of RHT, said: ‘Kentraugh Mill is always popular when it opens for National Mills Weekend and we are thrilled to be given the opportunity to tell the mill’s story through the centuries. We are sure many will take the opportunity to visit Kentraugh Mill on the weekend of May 7th and 8th – and we encourage those who do visit to come to Rushen Heritage Centre and discover the story behind it.’
