High Peak Railway at Steeplehouse Spring 1967
The track awaiting the lifting gang after the last train passed this way. A view over the gritstone faced embankment and bridge over the Matlock to Wirksworth road towards the tips of Godbehere (Cromford Moor) Lead mine.It was at this point, behind the camera position,where vandalism caused a locomotive to end up in the adjacent garden on 25th July 1955. The track in the foreground led to the steeply graded Killers Branch, serving the large underground limestone quarry at Middleton. This branch now - in part -serves the route of the narrow gauge Steeple Grange Light Railway. The actual date of the photograph is not recorded.
