The Bennerley Viaduct Skywalk


All Year Round

Venue: Bennerley Viaduct 

This walk over and around Bennerley Viaduct offers a unique experience to get up close to a magnificent piece of history. Located near Ilkeston, the viaduct straddles the border between Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and is easily accessible by public transport from Nottingham and Derby. Thanks to a devoted grassroots group, The Friends of Bennerley Viaduct, the viaduct has been restored and is now a walking and cycling path for all to enjoy! The new viaduct platform offers an exciting skywalk and with its new ramp approach on the Erewash canal side, it is accessible for wheels of all kinds.
