A bit of history in a grazing field
A bit of history in a grazing field
An information board on the road nearby states: 'The concrete structure in the field behind you is the end station of an old telfer, or cable car system, that operated until the 1930's. Buckets filled with road stone in the quarry were carried down the mountain by gravity as the empty buckets were taken back up'.
