Peak Café
121 Peak Road

The Peak Caf_ building was originally built in 1901 as a shelter for both private and public sedan chairs. Prior to this, the site housed a workshop and quarters for the British engineers responsible for the construction of the Peak tramline. As seen in old photographs, the present structure bears few similarities with the original – open arches built with concrete have been fitted with doors; the wooden truss with steel reinforcement now sits on a brick and concrete wall on top of the load-bearing stone walls. It is difficult to ascertain how much of the original has been retained or refurbished. In 1947, the building was converted into a cafe.
