SK2755 : Middleton Top engine house

near to Middleton, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Middleton Top engine house.
Middleton Top engine house.
This engine house is situated at the top of the Middleton incline and is the only one remaining of nine which were originally located at the top of every incline on the Cromford and High Peak Railway. It houses a Butterley beam engine which was used to haul waggons up the incline. The engine still operates one weekend a month during the summer using compressed air instead of the timber that was originally used to fire the boilers.
