Part 2 - Zeal Tor Tramway

A much earlier tramway existed close to the Red Lake Tramway. ...

The Zeal Tor Tramway was also known as Redlake Peat Tramway. Built for Messrs. Davy and Wilkin of Totnes, 1847-1850, for carrying peat from Redlake Mire to Shipley Bridge. The tramway was constructed from wooden rails bolted to granite blocks, along which the peat was transported in horse-drawn trucks. The business only continued for a few years and ended in 1850.
