Temporary closure of the Pennine Bridleway at Longcliffe and Hopton Tunnel

1st May 2019

Longcliffe

A section of the High Peak Trail is currently closed after a bridge carrying the trail over the B5056 at Longcliffe was hit by a lorry and had to be demolished.

Middleton Top Visitor Centre and car park will remain open allowing visitors to access the High Peak trail down to High Peak Junction and the Cromford Canal.

The High Peak Trail will remain open to just beyond Harborough Rocks where the Limestone Way crosses the trail. This closure will be in place up to where the trail crosses the B5056.

Visitors can also park at Minninglow or Parsley Hay which are at the other side of the closure.

Hopton Tunnel closure

Hopton Tunnel is 1km west of Middleton Top.

The trail around the tunnel will be closed on weekdays from Monday 29 April to Friday 24 May 2019.

The tunnel and trail will be open at weekends and for early May bank holiday (Monday 6 May) and for spring bank holiday and half term.

Contractors are carrying out safety works in the tunnel. This involves the removal of unstable rock and reinforced spray concrete repairs.
