Monsal Head is between The Caravan Club’s Castleton and Chatsworth sites. It is one of the Peak District’s main beauty spots. 

It used to be the route of the former Midland Railway built in the 1870s and campaigned against by John Ruskin who objected to the environmental damage it would do just “so any fool from Bakewell can be in Buxton by lunchtime.”

Sounds to me a bit like HS2.
