Nestled in the Derwent Valley, High Peak Junction was the hub of transport activity and is now a true haven of heritage and wildlife. It's literally the junction of the Cromford Canal and the High Peak Trail.
For those wishing to explore the trails further, the High Peak Trail joins the Tissington Trail at Parsley Hay.
Middleton Top, as you might expect, is at the top of a hill and offers delightful views of the surrounding countryside.
This site has a visitor centre, gift shop and cycle hire centre, car park, toilets and picnic area. Whether on foot, horse or bike it is an ideal place to start your visit along the beautiful High Peak Trail.
The High Peak Trail ends at Dowlow near Buxton.
