I have updated this web site after two more walks over this old Incline Railway, that is now the High Peak Trail. The walks were during May and June.

The latest walks are between Middleton Top and Hopton, followed by Hopton to Longcliffe. However most sections have had some updates of photos and/or text, including some video links.

This brings me to the futhest point that can be walked in a day without having to find a lodging overnight. The last two walks were quite long ones, each covering over 20 miles return walking in the one day and very enjoyable they were too. Hope you find the update of some interest. The Derby Dales are a very attractive and interesting area.

I have updated this web site from a visit to the HIgh peak Trail over the August Bank Holiday. Two new videos have also been added as well as a new page on my visit to the Steeplehouse Narrow Guage Railway.

I also enjoyed a couple of vists to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway at Wirksworth and had a trip over the Ravenstor branch that allowed me to walk up the incline and visit the National Stone Center and parts of the High p[eak TRail in that area.

However, my longest outing was walking the High Peak Trail, starting from my hotel at Wirksworth and up onto the inline at Middleton and walking the full distance to Parsley Hay and back. A round trip of a good 30 miles, whch I covered in just five minutes under eleven hours. The outgoing trip was a bit damp as it rained most pf the time but during my break at Parsley Hay the weather changed and I had a very warm and sunny walk back.

I have added three new sections to the web site from Longcliffe to Minninglow, Minninglow to Friden and Friden to Parsley Hay. I hope that some ofyou find it of interest.
