Millers Dale Bridge provides the most spectacular Peak District abseil site. Here you can have your Derbyshire abseiling adrenaline rush, jumping off a man-made structure.

At Millers Dale Bridge the challenge is to abseil over the arch, which is above the River Wye. This gives you an 80 foot abseil of which 70 feet is free hanging!
