BSO Monsal Bike and Abseil


Cycle to Millersdale viaduct for an exciting 80ft abseil! You'll hop on your bike at the old Thornbridge Hall station, heading along the Monsal Trail , an old railway line that passes through a narrow limestone valley and 3 tunnels. The Monsal Trail is wide and flat for a sociable rid out to the abseil.
