A tramway embankment borders the industrial estate at Greenhill Lane, and marks the course of a tramway of circa 1793 which connected with the Cromford Canal. Possibly some stone sleepers remain. (1)
Baxter describes the route of the Greenhill Lane tramway from Chesterfield canal; 'At Golden Valley, north-north west to Greenhill Lane Colliery'. The embankment probably sits on the course of the tramway somewhere south of Greenhill Lane Colliery. (2)
