About this image
Proposed Line of the A6. The Peak Forest Tramway was one of the earliest mineral railways in Britain to link with an inland waterways system and to use iron rails. It opened in 1796 and linked the vast quarries at Doveholes with the Bugsworth Canal Basin, six miles to the north east - a route engineered by Benjamin Outram, who successfully overcame the challenges posed by the north Derbyshire landscape, including constructing the second oldest railway tunnel in the world, the Stoddart Tunnel at Chapel-en-le-Frith.' taken from http://www.highpeak.gov.uk/culture/tourism.asp
