The MENDIP MULE is returning to her old Isle of Wight haunts for just one day this summer, running tours over some of her old routes from both her closed top (1971-86) and open top (1986-99) incarnations. She will cover her own SHANKLINS PONY open top route 44, as well as the famous coastal open top route 47,combined with the Ventnor/Wroxall/Shanklin “Rail Closure Replacement” route 39, that started in April 1966, and that she often worked from new in 1971. SO DON’T MISS THIS EAGERLY AWAITED RETURN TO THE “ISLAND OF HER BIRTH”. SIMPLY PAY WHEN BOARDING.
