High Peak Junction
High Peak Junction
High Peak Junction, near Cromford, is the name now used to describe the site where the former railway, whose workshops were located here and can be seen in the photograph, met the Cromford Canal. It lies within Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, designated in 2001, and today marks the southern end of the High Peak Trail, a 17 miles trail for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The Derwent Valley Heritage Way also passes this point, and popular walks lead from here along the towpath in both directions.

Cromford and High Peak Railway

The Cromford and High Peak Railway linked the Cromford Canal with the Peak Forest Canal at Whaley Bridge. It was built to plug a gap in the national waterway network, creating a crucial link between the coalfields of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire with the developing industries in and around Manchester. The line was closed in 1967.
