The Tissington Trail is a former railway line running between Buxton and Ashbourne.  We will be walking a 6 mile section between Tissington and Ashbourne.  We leave our transport on the A515 road close to the pretty village of Tissington.  Prior to walking the trail, but only if time permits, we can have a stroll around the village itself.  The trail then takes us in a southerly direction ending in Ashbourne.   This is a gentle easy walk through pleasant rolling countryside on good surfaces.  Please note that the trail is shared with cyclists and would ask therefore that we walk no more than two abreast.
