Outbuildings, formerly Peak Forest Tramway Forge and Smithy, on a long narrow triangular site running south-east from the head of the inclined plane. It was formerly occupied by multiple tramway lines, and associated buildings, constructed in 1795/6. It now incorporates three of these buildings as private dwellings: the incline keeper's house, forge and smithy outbuildings. (1,3).
The smithy, the forge and Top 'o' the Plane are original structures, which are still standing and in reasonable condition as they are now private houses. The boundary wall (SMR 29919) also still survives. (2).
Outbuildings, formerly Workshops of the Peak Forest Tramway, built 1796 by Benjamin Outram. Gritstone, with rock faced gritstone dressings and slate roofs. [See listed building record for full description]. (4).
