A delightful, querky and unassuming little attraction. A short but very inexpensive ride on a unique relic of Victorian history, which should please everyone, including the little ones. There is a small, but very informative, museum of the history of the Glen and the Tramway...More

I never get tired of the long walk up the hill beside this piece of history. A lovely play area at the bottom and moorland at the top. A recommended place to visit whatever the weather.
