Walked from Tissington to Ashbourne along the Tissington trail. Had to walk through the tunnel to get to Ashbourne. Not normally one for going through tunnels but this was a large tunnel and had lighting.

We have been through the tunnel four times now and still not been lucky enough to hear the sounds being played through it. It makes an interesting start to the Tissington Trail and it's fab for children who aren't easily spooked. There is a Sainsbury's...More

If in Ashbourne the tunnel is well worth a visit and walk through - it's at the start of the Tissington Trail

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.
