Wander around gardens and old buildings at Lissan House and sensea place frozen in time, full of ghosts and decay. Imagine sounds and activities from a time long past. Horse-drawn carts rumbling along with hay or corn or sacks of potatoes.A horsedrawn carriage stopping in front of the house?the echoes of time are still there- in some other dimension.The paddle-wheel at one time generated electricity for Lissan House. Water flowing over the submerged paddles turned a generator.
