taking our culture forward

A short documentary about a unique place in the Isle of Man; the stables of the Horse Trams on Douglas Promenade.

Nearly 150 years old, these stables were built on land purchased by Thomas Lightfoot in 1877 and today they are one of the oldest such stables anywhere in the world still in use for its original purpose.

This short documentary was filmed in 2017 with thanks to Isle of Man Transport and Friends of Douglas Bay Horse Tramway / Douglas Bay Tramway Heritage Trust.
