I think railway walks can be rather uninteresting but this one does have its attractions. You can stretch your legs without having to think much about where to go and views are good on the western leg. The eastern leg was in cuttings for part of the way which gave shelter from the wind.
Do not start where we did. Choose the car park at waypoints 1 and 2 or the car park at the old signal box, waypoint H.

    A really nice walk. Did this walk on a Sunday morning in sunny, warm weather. It is an easy walk with a small uphill section towards the end but there are a number of ways you could add on to this walk to extend it if desired. The views on a clear day on the west leg of the walk are fabulous and lapwings and buzzards were visible during the walk. There are two really nice places to stop for tea and lunch. At approx SK149691 there is the Hartington Signal Box Tea shop selling teas and ice-creams with some information on the railways upstairs. Outside seating only. And for something more substantial, at SK166603 at the junction of the A515 and the A5012 is an inn/restaurant called Carriages. This is a little more expensive (around £10 main course, £5 - £7 for sandwiches) but the service on our visit was excellent and the food delicious. The eating area is decorated like train carriages - sounds odd, but it's really nicely done. A fab walk, completed in around 2.5 hours with a good teas stop and great lunch.
