This 13km former railway line follows the former Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway that runs from Topley Pike Junction to Coombs Viaduct, just short of Bakewell.
Not only does it have impressive riverside views, but higher viewpoints from viaducts as well as darker trips through the many tunnels.
