blackwell 2The centre is approached by entering the Wye-Dale car park on the A6 (opposite the Topley Pike Quarry entrance), 3 miles south of Buxton towards Bakewell. The Monsal trail is a disused railway line closed in 1968 & recently converted in 2010-2011 into a new traffic free cycle track, allowing people to cycle from Blackwell Mill, Nr.Buxton to Bakewell. The eight & half mile trail follows the river Wye, & takes you through several newly opened lit tunnels, between steep gorges, surrounding limestone hills & across the spectacular Monsal Dale viaduct making this an exceptional cycling experience.

Discover the Monsal Trail in the Peak District National Park

Discover along the way the stepping stones & natural springs, lime-kilns & the old station at Millers Dale built in 1863 where the hustle & bustle of the past are but a distant memory. Spot the cotton mills of Litton & Cressbrook built in the 18th century, here the force of the river Wye was used to power the waterwheels of the mills. Stop & look down to see the river Wye waterfall at water Cum-Jolly unseen from this view point for over forty years. Cycle on to Hassop Station, where you can enjoy a welcome break at the book store & restaurant. Then cycling on to the famous Market town of Bakewell where you will find designated bike racks to allow you to park your bike & browse. On your return rest & relax before going home at Blackwell Mills very own Lazy Days Tuck shop where you can indulge yourself with refreshments of Coffee, cake & confectioneries.
