One of the most popular hiking trails in the Peak District is set to be resurfaced this month, using 100 per cent recycled, WRAP-approved aggregates.

A 1.4 mile stretch of the Tissington Trail will be closed temporarily this week to allow the resurfacing to take place. The section being worked on runs from Thorpe car park to Spend Lane Bridge, the Buxton Advertiser reported.

The national park authority will also use the opportunity to carry out tree safety management along this stretch of the trail.

A spokesperson told the newspaper that they’re carrying out multiple tasks to prevent the need for further closures later in the year.

“We have deliberately chosen the quietest period of the year on this popular route, to minimise the impact on visitors,” they said.

The trail should be open again by the end of February, the news provider added.

If you’re looking for outdoor activities in the Peak District to ease you into the new year, going for a walk along the stretch of the Tissington Trail that’s open is a great idea.

The whole trail is 13 miles in length, beginning at Parsley Hay and ending at Ashbourne. It’s been a traffic-free route since 1971, when the national park authority purchased an old railway line and turned it into a hiking and cycling trail.

There’s plenty to see along the way too, such as Dovedale – a stunning limestone valley that’s a National Nature Reserve run by the National Trust. It’s a great place for a wildlife walk with the family.
