A devastating loss to heritage. Douglas Borough Council has today [22 January 2016] released a statement saying that it is no longer willing to continue the 139 year-old Horse Tramway service along Douglas Promenades. The planned 2016 season is therefore cancelled. Horses will be found good homes, the tramcars will be offered to museums and the stables / depot sites will be sold off for re-development. The full statement can be read HERE.
