Team Way to Derwent Crook

Low Fell





Post Medieval


Documentary Evidence

A Wagonway, running north-west from Derwent Crook is marked as ‘Old’ on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan, so was probably out of use by 1857. This line was a branch of the Team Wagonway, probably laid in the 1680s. At some time it reached Low Fell but was cut back to Low Moor in 1812. It was still working in the 1840s.
