Full Description

A braided hollow way that ran from Goytsbridge to Buxton. It continues west as the hollow ways described in SMR entries 31679 and 31682. On the ridgeway the braids become one single deeply-cut hollow way. The route is probably of some antiquity, thought to be a salt route running from Macclesfield to Buxton. It was disused by the early 19th century. (1)
