Venture a little further and you’ll come to High Peak Junction (1830), one of the world’s oldest surviving railway workshops, and the Leawood Pumphouse with a working steam engine dating back to 1849.
In another panoramic spot on the west side of the gorge, Gulliver’s Kingdom is a theme park for kids aged 3 to 13.
