Full Description

Killamarsh, Tramroad. One of two tramroads commencing at the side cut near St. Giles' Church, Killamarsh. Operational during the first half of the 19th century, running to nearby collieries. Trace of their courses still survived in 1970. (1-2) (For the second tramroad, see SMR 8706) Shown on Greenwood's map of 1824-5. (3) Tramroad running from the end of the sidecut (SK463810) south to a coalpit east of Upperthorpe (SK 463804) (3/8 mile). Not shown on Sanderson's map of 1835, so presumably had gone out of use by that date. (4)
