The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway is a 9-mile (14.5 km) long heritage railway in Derbyshire, the headquarters of the railway centre around Wirksworth station respectively, and services operate in both directions between Wirksworth and Duffield and from Wirksworth to Ravenstor.
Heritage services are timed to connect with East Midlands Trains Nottingham - Derby - Matlock service at the adjacent Duffield Network Rail platforms and therefore it is now possible for passengers to travel to and from Wirksworth by train from anywhere on the national network.
The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway is named after the River Ecclesbourne and the track follows the river from its source to its confluence with the River Derwent at the Derbyshire village of Duffield.
