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
