Full Description

Two iron tanks, lying in line with each other. Both are set into the ground and are set in concrete, possibly signifying that this was in a pit lined with wood. The tank to the east is constructed of riveted iron plates with an everted rim. The tank is rectangular and open and is approximately 1.2m x 2m. The tank to the west is also made of riveted iron plates, but is sealed with a pipe outlet on one end and a square opening at the other. This tank was originally a boiler from an engine. The tanks lie parallel with the Cromford & High Peak Railway track. (1)
