Monument record MDR9560 - Embankment, Chapel-en-le-Frith Incline; Peak Forest Tramway, Chapel-en-le-Frith
Type and Period (1)
- TRAMWAY EMBANKMENT (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
- None recorded
Tramway embankment used to make up the gradient on the Chapel-en-le-Frith Incline. The form of the embankment is unclear, as there is a cutting for an adjacent road on the west side of the embankment, and the ground level on the east side is the same height as the embankment. However, it is clear that the embankment is formed by a retaining wall on its west side. On the upper part of the incline, on the east side, the embankment is more clearly formed. (1).
