Leapgate Old Railway Line

About the old railway line

The old railway line has changed little since the last train passed through over twenty years ago. Sometimes you are in a deep cutting walking below exposed sandstone rocks, other times you walk on an embankment above the surrounding countryside looking down on the rolling landscape.

Opening times

Admission is Free.
