A walk over the viaduct is a must and you will do it if you walk the trail. It is worth inspecting at close quaters remembering its age and how well designed it is. A masterpiece of railway architecture

A curious pair of bridges cross the river here, adjacent to the old station. The station buildings provide toilets. (It would be ripe for a cafe development.) A smallish car park is provided

With a little imagination you can still picture steam locomotives hauling their trains over this towering structure and into the station just beyond. To walk over it today one gets to appreciate the engineering that went into building this wonderful bridge.

Cyclists and those interested in old railway routes would love the old station and information boards as well as the fabulous remains of the 4 lnes and platforms that once ran across the viaduct and now make for an excellent cycle route to beyond Bakewell

Milers Dale viaduct is part of the Monsal Trail, and as such it is surrounded by lovely countryside and wonderful views. Especially nice on a sunny day.
