Walk description:

This is another stretch of the Tissington Trail from Hartington (Money Stones) to the old Tissington Station.

It is a disused railway line so the path takes you through gorgeous countryside where you are able to see for miles.

The path is made up of fine grit so therefore all types of pushchairs, buggies and wheelchairs should have no problems. We used an all terrain buggy but I would have been happy to use a standard pushchair on this surface.

If you do not wish to complete such a long walk you can walk to Alsop and then turn around and retrace your steps.

Additional notes:

There are benches along the route for you to stop and enjoy the views or have a picnic.

At Money Stones, you find the cafe in the old signal box and a quieter car park with a good disabled toilet. Free parking for blue badge holders and designated spaces.

There are also picnic benches, toilets and a small refreshment shop at the Tissington station.

There was plenty of animals and wildlife for my little girl to look at and this was obviously a popular walking route for dog owners.
