Dear Colleague

Public consultation is currently taking place on the proposal to extend the Monsal Trail from Bakewell to Matlock.  The off-road trail will involve using the existing tunnel behind Haddon Hall and new bridges being built, plus a section of new cycleway running alongside Peak Rail.  The funds are available and this is a one-off opportunity to complete a key section of the White Peak Loop, a long circular cycle route through the Peak District.

This would be a major boost for tourism in the Peak District and you are invited to give your opinion via an online survey (before 15th September) at:

 Many thanks

 Don Symonds
