    Default Rushen Abbey Inn - Isle of Man - October 2008


    Restoration had already just begun when I visited the old hotel, itís been empty for many years but thereís plans underway to re-open it as a restaurant for next summer.
    There wasnít that much left, though the top floor was pretty creepy. Sorry I donít have that many picturesÖ

    Is this place anywhere near the Manx railway? It looks almost railway building like. Like the outside of the building, and really like those stairs.

    Good pics,

    Thanks :) Yeah it is close by, itís in a town called Ballasalla which has a stop on the railway, but as far as Iím aware it wasnít ever used for railway purposes, but I could be wrong.
