New routes connecting Longshaw estate to the Froggatt, Curbar and Sheffield have now opened.

Cyclists, horse riders and walkers can now experience the National Trust site’s stunning landscape, thanks to the Longshaw bridleway development.

It is part of a wider plan to develop a better connected network across the Sheffield Moors to increase the quality and number of routes available to cyclists and horse riders.

Jon Stewart, General Manager of the National Trust in the Peak District says “The National Trust is committed to providing opportunities for all to discover the very special Peak District whether that is on foot, bike, or horse. I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to open these new bridleways at Longshaw, a really great place to get to know and enjoy the National Park. Increasing the connectivity of the cycle network in the area can only be a good thing for residents of the Peak District and all our visitors with post-Tour de France fever.”

The bridleways opened yesterday. Send your pictures of yourself enjoying the new route to or tag them on Instagram using #derbyshiretimes.
