We then approach some railway bridges that can be seen ahead. This is where the A6 Derby Rd passes under Ambergate Junction. This railway junction is where the branch line to Matlock leaves the main Derby to Sheffield line
Although the Matlock line is now only a branch line this was not always the case. It used to be the Midland Railway Company's main route from London St Pancras to Manchester. It was also the route from London to Buxton although Buxton was at the end of a branch line from Millers Dale. The line beyond Matlock was shut in 1968. The line reappears at quarries near Buxton used by frieght trains and continues to join the main Sheffield to Manchester railway line just to the east of Chinley. To see more on the junction at Chinley see my
train ride from Sheffield to Manchester Stopping Style
The main line from Derby to Sheffield is still used by London St Pancras to Sheffield trains. The line beyond Matlock as far as Rowsley was reopened in more recent years as a preserved by Peak Rail. Between Rowsley and Bakewell the trackbed becomes a walking route the Monsal Trail as far as Wye Head beyond Millers Dale this is a supberb scenic walk and if the railway had remained open would have been one of the countrys top scenic railways

Walk from Millers Dale to Bakewell on the Monsal Trail
