Summary of Surviving Remains: Although the start of the tramway has been obscured through landscaping close to Scout quarry the tramway is discernable as a low engineered platform, with a well preserved and defined embankment. The tramway also has a series of in situ sleepers and sections of railing along its course and a degraded wooden bridge located to the north of Scout quarry.
