The SGLR is situated on the High Peak Trail between Black Rocks and the National Stone Centre, near Wirksworth. You can park at either of these two locations. It is about five minute's easy walk from the car parks to the railway. The Railway is now included in a brown tourist sign scheme from the Wirksworth and Carsington areas. Additional signs are put out on operating days.

Disabled visitors should contact the railway and seek advice before visiting.
