The line will interest most people as it closed early and ran through superb scenery. It began in the Dove Valley and ran through the south of the Peak District.

The trains varied greatly and many carried much limestone. Walkers can now use the Tissington Trail to enjoy much of the route herein.



'Regular visitors and trail users will delight in the unrivalled series of archive photographs, large scale OS plans and historic timetables...  Superb country branch profile.'
(Heritage Railway, Issue 260,
25 October-21 November 2019)

'Some of the Peak District's lost railway stations have been brought back to life in a stunning new photographic album.'
(Buxton Advertiser, 24 October 2019)

'This is a well-researched book about another rural route that seems to have spent most of its relatively short life half asleep.'
(Steam World, Issue 389, November 2019)
