Type and Period (1)

Fifteen stone sleeper blocks are exposed. Where visible, the blocks have three holes in them which are perpendicular to the direction of the Peak Forest Tramway track. The middle hole of the three is set slightly out of line to the other two and is slightly above. Some of the blocks show an indent for the saddle. The blocks are probably in situ. (1)
