Funnily enough I managed to find it on Google Earth before I really knew where I was supposed to be looking, due to all the ruckling in the fields either side. It does look very interesting - probably not the same cause as Mam Tor, but certainly the same effect. So presumably water is trapped within a clay/gravel mix that is trying to roll down the dip, but is being prevented from doing so by a geological obstruction, and so it's piling up above it? And the road is essentailly now just floating around on top of it.
