Tholt-y-Will Bridge

Tholt-y-Will Bridge carries the A14 across the Sulby River in the heart of the picturesque wooded Sulby Glen. It is an old stone single arch bridge with the road forming a double bend as it crosses the narrow valley floor. The oldest part of the bridge is believed to date back to 1805, although it has been widened since. The bridge remains quite narrow, however, barely wide enough for two cars to pass, and is also subject to a 3.5T or possibly even a 2T weight limit. There are car parks on the north bank of the river from which the glen can be explored, and also a riverside cafe during the summer.
