830 Monsal Trail Tunnel

Once trains thundered across Monsal Head Viaduct and into Headstone Tunnel. Now fluorescent lighting curves away into the depths of the hillside with the flowers lining the trail even more beautiful when you emerge into daylight. The picturesque villages of Great and Little Longstone both have good hostelries while the splendid viaduct is one of the most spectacular in the country.
