The scenic Manifold cycle track winds its way through the picturesque valleys of the rivers Hamps and Manifold. It follows the route of the former Leek and Manifold light railway, which closed in 1934, leaving a legacy of a flat, traffic-free track for cyclists walkers and horse-riders.
We're situated midway between Leek and Ashbourne on the A523. From Leek, go straight through Waterhouses, then left over the small stone bridge by our sign board, just before leaving the village. From Ashbourne, turn right over the stone bridge immediately after the Waterhouses village sign.
Follow the track round to the right and you should be there!
