Mountains bikes users will be able to enjoy some new features on the Monsal Trail in Derbyshire if a project to help recall its past is successful.

The trail runs down an old railway line between London and Manchester that closed in 1968 and Peak District National Park interpretation officer Catherine Bowmer told Grough she is seeking people with memories of living, working and travelling by the line.

She stated: "I'm particularly looking for people who are happy to have their memories recorded to tell the story of this historic trail and recreate the atmosphere of the working railway line."

Ms Bowmer explained an audio history of such memories will be made available at three points along the line, something riders may wish to stop and listen to.

The Monsal trail is one of many across the country created by placing footpaths, bridleways and cycle tracks along old railway lines.

Others nearby include Middlewood Way, which follows a stretch of a Manchester to London route between Marple and Macclesfield.
