Birch Vale is a hamlet in the parish of Hayfield in the Peak District of Derbyshire. Driving through you’d be forgiven for thinking Birch Vale is just a speck on the map of the Dark Peaks with little to offer, because its beauty and attractions are hidden from view and can be found along the 2-and-a-half mile Sett Valley Trail. Following the original track of the railway line from the village of Hayfield to Manchester, the trail provides a tranquil and scenic route through the wonder of the High Peak for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. A place of outstanding natural beauty, this route forms part of the Pennine Bridleway National Trail between Hayfield village and Birch Vale. The area occupies a peaceful spot in the valley of the river Sett amid some of the wildest hills in the brooding Dark Peaks. Whether passing through or pausing a while to absorb the breathtaking natural beauty while exploring the trails, it is hard to imagine that the surrounding countryside stood once at the heartland of industrial England. For wheelchair users, Hayfield provides access to the Pennine Bridleway National Trail, cyclists and horse riders can join at Birch Vale and other junctures
