Heart of England Rail Rover - Friday

Heights of Abraham - Home Station : Derby

I have planned a visit to the Heights of Abraham since the beginning of the trip. The station for the Heights of Abraham was Matlock Bath and Not Matlock, the end of the line. I paid 6.50 for the previlage of riding on the cable car to the top and that includes the caverns at the top of the hill. There were two caverns there.
