its a tunnel you can walk / run / cycle through or pass through any way you like. with train sound effects, for the kids, its different, but nice to see a tunnel opened up and used instead of bricked up and unused.

The tunnel is part of the tissington trail, it leads you into Ashbourne town centre. It is a lovely walk through the tunnel with added sounds of old trains going through. There is also bike hire on the trail.

A long, particularly high tunnel which provided huge echoey entertainment on a stroll down to Ashbourne. A fun beginning or end to the Tissington Trail.

Had great fun singing our way through the tunnel, very dark and cold and the kids loved it. Nice little walk from callow top campsite to Ashbourne and there is a cafe and toilets on route too
