Old tramway depot
Old tramway depot
This extensive building housed the modest fleet of three cable cars which operated a route of just over half-a-mile up Matlock Bank, with a steepest gradient of I in 5. The cars operated by gripping a continuous cable, in the same manner as the famous San Francisco cable cars, which in fact inspired the project. They ran from 1893 to 1927. As well as the trams, the buildings housed a workshop, a steam winding engine, boiler house and offices.
