Derbyshire
The 13 km (8 mile) trail provides easy access for all, mainly following the Manifold Track, a resurfaced section of the old Leek & Manifold Valley Light Railway line, between Hulme End and Waterhouses. The trail is written for southbound travellers but can easily be completed in reverse. It can also be done in sections using access points at Weag's Bridge, Wetton Mill and Ecton Bridge.
