Sulby Bridge station opened on the 23rd September 1879 as part of the Manx Northern Railways St John to Ramsey line, it is built in red sandstone which was quarried from Peel.

The station is named after the adjacent Sulby Bridge, and it’s rather isolated position meant that it was not as busy as the nearby Sulby Glen station.

The St John to Ramsey line and all of its stations, including Sulby Bridge station closed completely in 1968.

Railway House is now in private ownership.

A Snippet of History

In the early morning of May 8th 1888 the hotel suffered a mysterious fire and was subsequently totally destroyed, there was no injury or loss of life as it was empty at the time.

Previously known as the ‘Scottish Tavern’ which dated from the 1790s, the name of the replacement and new hotel came from the locally famous ginger beer that was brewed on the premises.

Standing on the road down to Tholt y Will and overlooking a rather full Sulby Reservoir, with Druidale Farm in the back ground.

Our Isle of Man countryside doesn’t get much better than this 🙂

The interesting aspect of this beautiful Manx Cottage is the gate pillar and the cast hand of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley. Measured from floor to the tip of the hand it measures 7’11″ which is exactly the same height of the Manx Giant.

Apparently Captain George Burrows, had a Market Garden and a coal yard in Parliament Street in Ramsey and he lived in Rose Cottage. He employed ‘The Manx Giant’ and he had the hands made which he put on the gateposts. He (Capt George Burrows) also gave some items to the Manx Museum in Douglas.
