Monument record MDR9180 - Embankment at Cotesfield Farm; Cromford & High Peak Railway

Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Embankment built as a long mound with sloping sides. The embankment is grassed over, therefore it is unclear which materials have been used in its construction. The embankment is flanked on either side by boundary walls, (SMR 29040 & 7100), and a stone bridge (SMR 29049), is incorporated within it. The embankment is approximately 6m high at its highest point, and approximately 30m at its widest. The north-west end of the embankment overlies, and possibly seals, features of the original route of the Cromford & High Peak Railway. (1-4). NGR: SK 13636 64343 - SK 13268 64488
