Cable tram depot, Bank Road, Matlock

Picture from "Matlock Tram cableway" poster, showing the building (at the top of Bank Road) that used to house the boiler and mechanism driving the under-road cable which pulled the tram up the 1 in 6 gradient of Bank Road.
Today, the chimney has gone, and the building is used as a garage.
