Archibald Knox was born in the Isle of Man of Scottish parenthood. His designs were synonymous with British Art Nouveau and he is regarded as being a prominent influence in the Arts and Crafts movement. His Celtic designs and calligraphy are world famous and iconic in the Isle of Man. Today both his art work for Liberty & Co and his watercolours are highly sought after.

A rare opportunity to view Archibald Knox's birthplace

With Braddan Parish Commissioners

Braddan Parish Commissioners will be opening the cottage in Cronkbourne Village that was the birthplace of Archibald Knox.

As well as being able to get an impression of the size of the cottages (which have been modernised since they came into the Commissioners ownership in 1958 for the princely sum of £30,299) there will be various displays giving an insight into Knox’s work and life as well as what the Commissioners have done to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Archibald Knox’s birth.
