Ecclesbourne Valley Railway
The Ecclesbourne Valley is one of Derbyshire’s most lovely and unspoilt valleys, stretching from the northern outskirts of Derby, at Duffield, to Wirksworth, an ancient market town known as "The Gem of the Peak". Wirksworth offers a variety of cosy pubs, bistros, cafes and traditional shops, with a regular market on Tuesdays, a Farmer’s Market on the first Saturday of each month.
The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway runs passenger services on the line between Wirksworth and Duffield; mainly using heritage diesel railcars. On selected days, steam hauled services run on the short branch between Wirksworth and Ravenstor.
