Not Stated:  The Matlock Steep Gradient Tramway
Book Number: 10024
The Arkwright Society Cromford, Derbyshire, England 1972  the cable tramway from matlock bridge to matlock bank - report of the inaugural ceremony - 42 pages b/w photos - The tram was the steepest tramway in the world on public roads, featuring a 1 in 5 grade slope (18%). The tramcars had no independent power but were pulled by a cable situated below and between the tracks. The barn was situated at the top of the incline and a tram would go up whilst another would go down the hill. Trams went from Crown Square, where a grand tram shelter once stood, to Rutland Street. The route was originally planned to begin at the railway station but due to its location, risks of flooding forced the terminus to be set up on Crown Square.
