Great Longstone, Church Lane Farm
Time & Location
About the Event
Great Longstone is a classic Peak District village: couple of great pubs within walking distance; adjacent to Monsal Trail for family-friendly off-road walking and cycling. The village provides easy access to Bakewell which offers the visitor a vast array of possibilities including boutique shops, arcades and courtyards around the Town centre and it's market every Monday. Although the Town lost it's railway links in 1967 this benefits the modern-day recreational visitor because the former Midland Railway now hosts the Monsal Trail, a popular walking and cycling route that cuts through spectacular limestone dales, via a series of tunnels and bridges. The Trail can be picked-up easily from the Meet site at Great Longstone. The view from Monsal Head is one of the iconic vistas in the Peak District that should not be missed.
