Belper and Morley Park Railway walk, 26th July 2022, 2.15pm

  • Location Belper
  • Price from £5.00


A Derwent Valley Tours Walk!
This early horse drawn railway was built over a period of 40 years to bring coal from the Denby coal fields into Belper. By the time it was finished in 1842 it was redundant! The 3 mile circular walk follows a well preserved section of the route as far as Denby. We return looking at remains of the original, much more hair-raising, route. 

What you’ll need: Suitable clothing and footwear. The route is on rough surfaced and unsurfaced paths with stiles, through woodland and includes a steep slope.

Meet at Openwoodgate crossroads, Belper (DDE56 0SD), bus services and on-street parking available.
