Consall Plateway
Consall Plateway
Also known as the North Stafford Railway, the plateway was built between 1815 and 1820 to deliver limestone from the canal at Consallforge to wharves along the line down to Weston Coyney. It was not a great success and suffered financial difficulties. The southern sections were abandoned early on and the remainder fell into disuse some time after 1840. This section is now the access road to Knowle Bank Farm.
