Bakewell to Blackwell Mill,
DE45 1GE


After a £2m restoration scheme, the Monsal Trail an 81/2 mile stretch of railway line between Bakewell and Blackwell Junction near Buxton, is now open again after over 40 years. Tunnels, blocked up since the 1960's have been opened up, lighting installed and the route resurfaced suitable for bicycles. Formerly part of the Midland Railway's route between Manchester and London, the trail offers an amazing journey though narrow cuttings and over impressive viaducts above the River Wye. The views are amazing, the wildlife abundant - explore it before everyone finds out! Bike hire available at Hassop Station and Blackwell Mill. For further information contact 01629 816558 or
