Middleton Top (High Peak Trail)
Located at the visitor centre close to the town of Middleton-by-Wirksworth.
17.5 miles of traffic free cycling along the High Peak Trail - links with
the Tissington Trail just south of Parsley Hay. Toilets. Refreshments and
souvenirs at the visitor centre. Middleton Top was one of two winding stations
hereabouts on the Cromford and High Peak Railway, that
trucks up the steep incline from the Cromford Canal as the gradient was
severe. Once on the limestone plateau, the line was much more level but
renowned for its tight curves that followed the contour lines.
