Travel back in time and experience the thrill of a byegone era whilst travelling on Peak Rails heritage railway line. The line forms part of the old Midland Railway line which ran between Manchester and London St Pancras. It has been re-instated mostly by volunteers and currently runs between Rowsley and Matlock, over a distance of four miles.
There are special events held throughout the year, and it is best to check their website prior to going, just to check availability.
Dogs are welcome to travel on the train, and will appreciate the low windows and the slow pace that the train travels.
You will also find that the Limestone Way is easy to get to from Matlock station if you fancy a walk over the hills towards Bonsall.
