Title Information on Marple Landslip 1893
Description Update by Warwick Burton in 1980 to book "Railways of Marple and District" published 1794. Gives details of the Marple Landslip in December 1893 between Goyt Viaduct and Marple South Tunnel, and the consequent repair/reconstruction of the railway line. Mentions also that material from the slip poured down as far as the wall of Marple Lodge, which was evacuated and, as a result of the damage done, eventually fell into disrepair.
Date From 1 Jan 1980 to 31 Dec 1980
