in this area.
We left the railway at the viaduct which is now very popular as an abseiling site, watching the participants swinging 50 or 60 feet above us.
The route then led us to Chee Dale, primeval in appearance, and we struggled to negotiate overgrown vegetation, slippery rocks polished through the passing of many feet, steep cliffs overhead and finally stepping stones along the river.
After this excitement we were again able to access the Monsal Trail to make our way back to the car park, to complete a thoroughly enjoyable and interesting day out.
