Access for All. The Tramper Off-Road Buggy can navigate a wide range of terrain types, including rough, uneven, and muddy terrain. The Tramper Off-Road Buggy has a good range suitable for a day out on the trail on a single charge.
The Peak District National Park vehicles come with a higher speed rating, allowing riders to keep up with family and friends who may be joining them on their bikes.
Trampers are available to hire at Parsley Hay, Upper Derwent Valley and Ashbourne (Mapleton) hire centres. (Check with the National Park centres for availability before travelling).
If travelling by bus, then this photograph from Bamford Edge from the Visit Peak District image library is one of mine, acting as encouragement to leave the car at home.
The view from Bamford Edge of Ladybower is truly breathtaking, with panoramic vistas of the reservoir and the surrounding landscape. Consider taking the bus and then walking up to Bamford Edge specifically to see the view of Ladybower, it's considered one of the most beautiful spots in the Peak District National Park.
The Bogtastic Van is a mobile educational unit that operates in the Peak District National Park. The van is designed to provide visitors, particularly children, with an interactive and engaging way to learn about the importance of protecting the park's peat bogs.
Peat bogs are important for a variety of reasons. They are home to a unique variety of plant and animal life, they help to regulate the water supply, and they store large amounts of carbon. However, peat bogs are under threat from human activities such as drainage, burning, and damage from recreational use.
The Bogtastic Van provides information about peat bogs and their importance, as well as the ways in which visitors can help to protect them. It also offers activities such as quizzes, games, and experiments to make learning about peat bogs more fun and engaging.

Millers Dale Goods Shed is a historic railway building located in Millers Dale, a village in the Peak District National Park. The building was originally constructed in the late 19th century as part of the Midland Railway line between Manchester and London.
The goods shed was an important part of the railway system, serving as a hub for the transport and distribution of goods such as coal, livestock, and agricultural products. The shed was equipped with a loading bay, crane, and storage areas for goods.
During World War II, the goods shed played a significant role in the transportation of military supplies and equipment. After the war, the decline in the use of rail transport led to the closure of the Millers Dale station and the goods shed in 1967.
In the decades that followed, the building fell into disrepair, but was saved from demolition by the Peak Park Planning Board and the Peak District National Park Authority. The goods shed was renovated in the 1990s and is now used as a visitor center and exhibition space.
Today, visitors to Millers Dale Goods Shed can learn about the history of the railway and its impact on the surrounding area through exhibits, displays, and events. The building also serves as a hub for local community activities and hosts a range of cultural and educational events throughout the year.
