General information ...
in the Peak District: Off Road Trails and Quiet Lanes
Peak District (AA 40 Pub Walks & Cycle Rides)
The Ashbourne Cycle hire centre is located conveniently at the Ashbourne
end of the Tissington Trail.
The Tissington trail offers 13.5 miles of traffic free cycling, through the heart of the White Peak. The trail heads north from Ashbourne and passes over the A515 to Buxton. Three miles from the cycle hire centre, you reach Tissington village. Here, we recommend that you stop a while, take a look round the fascinating old church with its Saxon and Norman relics, see the well, duck pond, the impressive Tissington hall and maybe have a nice cuppa and a cake! The Tissington trail links with the High Peak Trail, which would make for a long day out if you explore that too.
