Former tramway siding, climbing away from the group of sidings east of the Upper Basin, then turning to reach the top of Gnat Hole lime kilns overlooking the south side of Middle Basin. The siding enabled the tramway wagons laden with limestone to be hauled to the kiln mouth to discharge their loads into it. In use from 1815 to 1846, but demolished in the early 1980s to make way for the A6. (1)
