There are some seats left on the coach for this event. The closing date for bookings, which should be made through Gerald Leach is Monday 24th September – see below for further details.

A walk, led by Paul Blurton, along former track beds to explore further sections of the former Cromford and High Peak Railway. Walking distance is five miles approx.

The Group will meet at Buxton Railway station at 11.00 a.m. following arrival at 10.49 a.m. of the 09.48 train departure from Manchester Piccadilly (also departs Stockport at 10.02).

From Buxton a coach will be available to transport the group to Parsley Hay, where the walk will commence. Note that there will be a charge of £10 for travel on the coach.

The morning itinerary will be a walk to view those parts of the line between between Parsley Hay and Hurdlow, noting the 1892 route alterations. To save time the lunch break will be at the former Hurdlow Station picnic area so please bring a packed lunch. There is a pub in close proximity which can be used for purchase of beverages and use of toilets. After lunch the walk will continue along the 1869 track bed to Dowlow where we will view the incline and earlier track bed that the 1869 new route made redundant. Return via Hurdlow Township to the former Hurdlow station, where the coach will be available in mid-afternoon to make the return journey to Buxton Station, estimated arrival there at 4.30 p.m.

Firm bookings are now being accepted and seats on the coach are still available. These should be booked through contacting Gerald Leach.

The closing date for bookings and payment is Monday 24th September.
