Set in an enviable location on the banks of the River Wye, in the heart of the Peak District, is the picturesque old market town of Bakewell.
Visitors flock to Bakewell in the summer, to shop and explore its many nooks and cranies, to admire its fine buildings, or just relax and feed the ducks by the lovely, clear, sparkling waters of the River Wye.
This is an exhilarating walk through high pastures and woodland returning along the Monsal Trail to Bakewell’s former railway station.
You join The Monsal Trail at Coombs Road viaduct, the eastern terminal of the trail. The Peak National Park, following the closure of The Midland Railway in 1968, established the footpath.
