The monument consists of the remains of a complete tramroad incline formation from an important horse-drawn tramroadbuilt built in 1832, including a former counterbalance drum housing and marshalling areas at top and bottom.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of 18th and 19th century industrial and transportation practices. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. A drumhouse may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive. It is roughly 363m long and 10m wide, including the full widths of the cuttings, embankments and boundary hedges.
