Golden Valley Light Railway

The Narrow Gauge line is operated by the Golden Valley Light Railway. Trains run on most weekends and school holidays from April until October. The journey runs through the Country Park to a terminus which overlooks the restored canal basin and the entrance to Butterley Tunnel on the Cromford Canal.

You can use this line to explore the Country Park or simply enjoy a trip on this unusual train. Stock for this project has been collected from a variety of sources including local collieries, brick works, with some vehicles from as far away as Poland.

A small additional charge is made.

Historical note:  This 2 foot gauge line operates on the track bed of the Butterley Works plateway which was built to carry goods to the canal at Ironville.
