IPSTONES C.P. CALDON CANAL, Froghall
SK 04 NW
10/206 Tramway terminus (that
- part in Ipstones C.P.)
and retaining walls
approx. 20m east of
head of Caldon Canal
Retaining walls to former tramway terminus. Circa 1783. Rock-faced
ashlar approximately 8m high x 40m. Slightly corbelled out at coping;
2 buttresses to left, either side of small round-arch water channel;
further round arch to centre; retaining wall ramped down on right
side in a concave curve. The tramway was built to bring down lime-
stone from Caldon Low to the canal. It was originally conceived to
run the canal up to the quarry; the gradient however being so
considerable must have determined that the tramway should be built.
The terminus forms a close group with Froghall Forge (q.v.),
warehouse (q.v.) and canal bridge (q.v.).
