Type and Period (1)
- CART LOADING BAY (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
- None recorded
Watering/loading ramp. Large retaining wall sloping up from track level until it reaches approximately 3m high and 60m long. There is a gap of approximately 5m, whereupon a rock cutting forms the other side of the ramp with a boundary wall rising up. The cutting is approximately 4m high at its highest point, and again slopes up from track level. The wall is approximately 1m high on top. The large retaining wall is constructed of large, regular, mortared gritstone blocks. A large post, approximately 30cm diameter, is in the wall and a large vertical wooden post is at the highest end of the wall. Water tenders were shunted up the ramp to supply water to the locomotives which stopped below; the ramp was also used for loading. (1-7)
