Accessible Trail Buxworth to Whaley Bridge Canal Basins

High Peak Access Group was asked to carry out an audit of an intended accessible trail from Bugsworth Basin, along the canal towpath to Whaley Bridge Canal Basin, on the Peak Forest canal, via a trail leading under the canal and back onto the canal towpath to Whaley Bridge. The total distance of the trail in approximately 2.25km.  


Site Description

The Audit began at Bugsworth Basin near the village of Buxworth, in High Peak. There is an unmade track from the road to the start of the walk, with some limited parking available alongside the canal. There are no designated accessible parking spaces in the area immediately alongside the walk although two could be provided. Bugsworth Basin Heritage Trust have provided an exhibition in a couple of containers that explains the history and development of the Canal Basin. The terrain around the start of the trail is generally loose gravel and compacted earth. The trail continues along the canal towpath.
