  • None recorded

Full Description

A braided hollow way running up the steep spur from Goytsbridge, running south-westwards to the Stake Side ridgetop, and heading in the direction of Macclesfield. It continued east of Goytsbridge towards Buxton [See SMR 31681]. This route had been abandoned by the mid 19th century, by which time it had been replaced by a track and blocked by enclosure walls. Most of the braids are shallow, with the exception of the most south-easterly which is deep. This was still in use in c. 1840. (1)
