MONSAL TRAIL – BLACKWELL MILL CYCLE HIRE
THE BEST CYCLE HIRE PRICES ON THE MONSAL TRAIL situated at the beginning of the Magnificent Monsal Trail, in the Peak District National Park.
The centre is approached by entering the Wye-Dale car park on the A6 (opposite the Topley Pike Quarry entrance), 8 miles north of Bakewell and 4 miles south of Buxton on the A6. The Monsal trail is a disused railway line closed in 1968 and 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 and half mile trail follows the river Wye, taking you through several newly opened lit tunnels, between steep gorges, surrounding limestone hills and across the spectacular Monsal Dale viaduct making this an exceptional cycling experience.
Discover The Monsal Trail
Discover along the way the stepping stones and natural springs, lime-kilns and the old station at Millers Dale built in 1863 where the hustle and bustle of the past are but a distant memory. Spot the cotton mills of Litton and Cressbrook built in the 18th century, here the force of the river Wye was used to power the waterwheels of the mills. Stop and 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 and restaurant. Then continue cycling on to the famous Market town of Bakewell where you will find designated bike racks to allow you to park your bike and browse. On your return rest and relax before going home at Blackwell Mills very own Lazy Days Tuck shop where you can indulge yourself with refreshments of coffee, cake and confectioneries.
