After leaving Hindlow the line began to climb at 1 in 60 through Hindlow Tunnel to Brigg's Sidings and its summit at Dowlow Halt. 1,260 feet (380 m) at the summit, this was the highest main line in England at the time. From Dowlow Halt the line travelled downhill at a gradient of 1 in 60 to Hurdlow.
Brigg's Sidings served Messrs. Briggs and the Dowlow Lime and Stone Company (later Steetley, then Redland Aggregates).
The halt itself was unstaffed with two short stone platforms and without buildings, since it was initially used by workmen's trains for the nearby works. It was opened for public services in November 1929. Passenger services on the line finished in 1954.
