Riders get new Peak routes
Bookmark and Share
A new network of Peak District routes based on the roads and tracks used by a notorious 18th century highwayman has been established with those wearing riding hats and cycling gear in mind.

Riders of horses and mountain bikes can enjoy the Black Harry Trails, which criss-cross the moors between Great Longstone and Stoney Middleton in Derbyshire and include areas around Longside Edge.

National Park access officer Sue Smith noted the trails are mainly for those using pedal or horsepower to get around, although some parts will permit motorised vehicles.

She added: "Black Harry is part of our local heritage who is still with us in the names of Black Harry Lane and Black Harry Gate."

A map produced by the national park authority of the area and its new trails also reveals where the Monsal Trail passes just to the south, which may prompt some to try to enjoy rides combining the rail and crime histories of the area.
