Trail Description (1.7Mb pdf)

This trail starts at the Bakewell Visitor Centre.  This trail, devised for the Bakewell Partnership, gives more information about some and visits some less well – known sites.

The trail is about a mile (1.6 km.) long and takes about one hour plus time spent in the museum and church. Bakewell being a hillside town, part of this trail is steep in places so is not suitable for wheelchairs. To miss the steep part, instead of going Up-The-Chimney at point 5 turn left along Buxton Road; go past the front of the Rutland Arms Hotel and turn right up King Street; join the trail again at point 12, the Old Town Hall.
