Description of route 

Top 

From Ryde to Shanklin. The line ran on to Ventnor from Shanklin but this was closed due to the poor condition of the tunnel at the north end of the station. The station site is now an industrial estate. This station was located above the town of Ventnor and was not as convenient therefore as Ventnor West on the Isle of Wight Central Railway (also closed).
