  • (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Part of an early access route of cart-width leading from Bagshaw to the Castleton to Chapel-en-le-Frith (via Rushop Edge) Turnpike. It is of post-medieval date and overlays Feature No. 4 [MDR22778]. The trackway was built sometime before the 1880 Ordnance Survey map. It is unclear whether earlier available maps would show this feature, as it was not part of their purpose to show such minor routeways. The trackway probably went out of use sometime between 1880 and 1922, as it is not shown on the 3rd edition Ordnance Survey map of 1922. (1)
