This is a slightly revised and corrected edition of the book originally published in 1994. In the Oakwood PS Series (Pictorial Survey) as the title suggests this is very much a picture-led title consisting of 159 illustrations, mainly photographs but also including maps and gradient charts. Affected by the Beeching axe in 1967, part of the picturesque Peak Line still enjoys a passenger service today between Ambergate and Matlock while preservationists have built a new station at Matlock Riverside and relaid a section of track towards Darley Dale. The rest of the Peak Line remains closed but can be enjoyed on foot or by bicycle. The book transports the reader on an imaginary journey from Buxton to Ambergate with an interlude at Chinley.
Softback, 80 pages, 159 black & white photographs
