Country Park

Why not take a nice stroll through the countryside at the Midland Railway – Butterley. With its wildlife, industrial heritage and views of passing trains, we would definitely recommend it.

35 Acre Country Park

A walk through the Country Park will reveal an area that has remained hidden and unspoilt with glimpses of an industrial past. The remains of old collieries, tramways, reservoirs, the Cromford Canal with its Butterley Tunnel and  the abandoned village of Grumblethorpe have merged with the natural landscape and are waiting to be re-discovered.

A Range of Wildlife

Throughout the year you will see changes in the wildlife from bluebells, celandines, trees in full leaf, meadow flowers and birdsong in spring/summer, to autumn leaves, wild fruits, and animals scavenging and fallen leaves in autumn/winter.  This is truly a place to relax and unwind.
