Samuel Oldknow commenced construction of his lime kilns near Top Lock at Marple at this time and the first recorded delivery of lime was received on 31 July The Peak Forest Tramway was originally planned to be about four miles (6 km) long from Chapel Milton to Dove Holes, both in Derbyshire. However, it was decided to start the tramway at Bugsworth (now called Buxworth) and, as built, it was about six miles (10 km) long.

The Peak Forest Canal runs for 15 miles between Ashton under Lyne and Whalley Bridge. It links the Ashton Canal with the Macclesfield Canal at Marple.
