A restored steam engine house built in 1829 by the Butterly Company to haul wagons up the Middleton incline. Using the power of steam it raised and lowered wagons on the Middleton Incline of the Cromford and High Peak Railway.
The hill was a 1 in 8, and carried passengers as well as local stone. It finally closing when a runaway carriage killed a passenger.
I like the architecture of this building sat on top of a hill in the middle of nowhere.
