The Phoenix Greenways
The Phoenix Greenways are great for walking, cycling and horse riding.
The greenways are a network of easy access off-road trails and quiet lanes. Once old railways and collieries, the trails are rising like a Phoenix from the ashes of industry.
Using the Phoenix Greenways you can explore some of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire's most beautiful landscapes. With great attractions in the surrounding area you can spend the day, a weekend or even a week.
