Interpretation panels

Look for the interpretation panels – some are mounted on plinths, some in the safety railings and some at ground level.

Bugsworth Basin exhibition

Housed in the cabin near Blackbrook House, there is a display of photographs, artefacts and models, telling the history of the Peak Forest Canal and Tramway and Buxworth village. You’ll find images from around 1900, maps, aerial photographs, images of local people, then and now photos, before and after photos of the restoration, and descriptions of the operations at Bugsworth Basin and the Peak Forest Tramway.
