This quaint little lodge is situated on one of the busiest main roads on the Island, “Thornton Lodge” is sited in the grounds of the Former “Thornton” which was a mansion house accessed along Peel Road in Douglas (opposite Hills Meadow) and is now the HQ for the Department of Education and Children in the relatively newly constructed “Hamilton House”.
