With the decision by Graham to close the doors on Caley’s General Store and Post Office in Sulby on March 28th 2020, I decided to ask Graham if I can take a few pictures for this website and for a historic record of such wonderful people and a fantastic village store in Sulby.

I have also included a very similar image that I took of the late Raymond Caley in June of 2016 (RIP Raymond).

A lovely guided walk around Killabregga Tholtans this afternoon with Ballaugh Heritage Trust, this particular Tholtan was one of the two homes amongst all the barns and piggery and threshing house etc. The upright stones to the right of the image were thought to be peat drying stones, where the peat was hung over to dry out.

Killabregga Farm was last farmed in the early 1960’s by the Kinrade family.

A wide angle view of the low water levels at Sulby Reservoir this evening (7th Aug 18).

The water under normal conditions is usually overflowing into the overflow structure in the centre of the image.
