Hartington Signal Box, Tissington Trail
Hartington Signal Box
The Tissington Trail is the track bed of the LNWR Buxton to Ashbourne line which was closed in the 1960s. It was reopened as a 13 mile long cycling and walking trail in 1971. It is very popular with visitors to the Peak District and joins with the High Peak Trail, another converted railway line. Many examples of the railway architecture have been preserved along the line. Hartington Signal Box still has all the signal levers intact. (Panasonic Lumix TZ10)
