Top Trail Earner

FIGURES suggest the Tissington Trail brings more customers to its local economy than any other trail in the Peak District.

Ahead of the formulation of a five year plan for all its trails the Peak District National Park Authority has surveyed trail users and asked what they have spent in the local area during their visit.

Out of six trails studied, including the High Peak Trail and the Monsal Trail, Ashbourne’s Tissington Trail — which starts in Mappleton Lane — was found to provide the biggest boost to surrounding businesses.

The former railway, which is managed by the National Park Authority and runs 13 miles north towards Buxton, sees the highest proportion of users spending in excess of £25 — which bosses say suggests the bridleway has a positive economic impact for businesses in Ashbourne and the surrounding area.
