New panel gives Peak District walkers a railway history lesson

Outdoor enthusiasts using a Peak District route can take a fresh look at its history, after the installation of a new information panel.

The board has been installed near the Woodhead Tunnels on the Trans Pennine Trail, which follows the route of a disused railway line in the area.

The panel, close to the site of the former Woodhead station, tells the tale of the railway tunnels, which are now used by National Grid to carry power lines under the moors.

It follows work by National Grid to install replacement cables in tunnel three, which was built in the 1950s. As part of the work, the entrances to two mid-19th century tunnels were sealed and the former station area improved.
