Walking Festival 2016


The Phonenix 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.

While you are here, why not try our audio trail. Using smartphone technology, look out for symbols by the trail and download fascinating snippets about the trails’ history and today’s countryside.

There are many places to join the network and these all have car parking – some also have horse box parking.
