How to get there
the junction lies just off the A6 road about 3km south-east of Cromford. It can be reached from the A6, but access is easier by turning off the A6 at Cromford to take the road to the station. Continue past Cromford station along side the River Derwent for 3km until the road turns away from the river, where you see a parking place and a bridge across the river.
By Bus: The Trans-Peak bus (Nottingham to Buxton via Derby) goes along the A6, with an hourly service.
By Train: Cromford Station lies approximately 3km away. From there head back into Cromford a short distance to the end of the Cromford Canal - the towpath offers a pleasant walk to High Peak Junction.
