“Bridge Of Sighs”

Millers Dale Viaduct
Reviewed 4 May 2018

There are actually two viaducts, though only one is accessible. For maximum enjoyment, visit the viaducts (adjacent to the former Miller's Dale station, which has toilets and parking) as part of a walk or cycle on the splendid Monsal Trail. Its eight-and-a-half miles connect Blackwell Mill and Bakewell. The Miller's Dale viaducts are one of several examples of impressive Victorian engineering on a rail link abandoned in 1968.

Driving out of Sheffield through the peak district, stopped off to see and walk along the Millers Dale Viaduct - a disused railway viaduct.
Walking along the path, there are disused lime kilms to see - another interesting relic from the industrial past of the area.
A nice wet April walk in the countryside!

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

This is a good place to start walks either direction of the Monsal Trail.The station has long since seen a train pass through it but it was a major artery for goods to be transported from Derby to Hudderfield .There sre also in the vicinity lime kiln burners and an old lime stone crushing building dating back to the turn of the 19th centuryThe station spans the road and the view down gives you the real perpective of how difficult it must have been to build such bridges back in the 1800's
