Full Description

Bibbington's tramway carried lime ash from the Perseverance Works, active from 1840 to the late 1930s, up into Dove Holes Dale for dumping. The tramway was established by Samuel Bibbington in 1863 to link Perseverance Quarry to the new Buxton railway. The converging lines of the inclines serving each dump demonstrate that waste trains were brought over Dale Road tramway bridge towards Dove Holes village, before reversing eastwards and ascending the various dumps.
