This Mill dates back to circa 1671.

In the late 80’s the Mill was converted into a distillery and used for the production of “Kella Whiskey” which went on to be renamed “Kella Spirit”

Sulby Glen Station opened on the 23rd September 1879 as part of the Manx Northern Railways St John’s to Ramsey line.  The station was situated on the south side of the road from Sulby Glen to the Coast . The station had a single siding with a combined raised goods platform and cattle dock.

The Manx Railway system was very  busy well into the second half of the 20th century but by the 1950’s  traffic levels began to decline as less holidaymakers visited the island and  road transport competition started to make its presence felt.The St Johns to Ramsey line along with all of its  stations, including Sulby Glen was closed completely on the 13th  November 1965. It re-opened to passenger services in 1967 but closed again on the 6th September 1968  this time for good.

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

On the steep sloapes overlooking the Tholt y Will Valley in Sulby lies a number of derelict Manx Tholtans and are called the Corrady, the last time I visited this area in 2004 the roof of this particular Tholtan was truly intact See 2004 image

This store has stood on this site since the 1930’s and it is generally believed that the heart of any village lies in the village shop and it is certainly true with Caley’s general store in Sulby village and it’s present proprietor Raymond Caley.
