  • According to a google search talking about a similar path in Whitby.
    “ The track ballast was made from cinders rather than crushed stone, hence the name the Cinder Track.”
    It’s noticeable because it’s black rather than the yellow of the other tracks in the area that come from the native sandstone of the Moors.
    I’m not totally sure if it refers to cinder as a waste product from industry or scoria/volcanic rock.
    It’s smooth and nice to ride on. Mainly because of the preparation to make it into a railway line rather than the material itself I guess.
