The second edition of The Dictionary of Urbanism by Rob Cowan, published in 2020, suggests that a stoneway (or stone tramway) is: ‘A paved surface consisting of two parallel tracks of stone for a vehicle’s wheels to run on, and setts between the slabs to provide a good grip for its horse’s hooves. They were used in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.’
