Trail shut for show

A section of the Monsal Trail is to be closed for two days in August to help reduce traffic jams caused by visitors going to Bakewell Show.

The closure will affect a one mile section of the trail – between Hassop Station and Bakewell Station – on Wednesday, August 3, and Thursday, August 4.

On both days that section of the trail will form part of a temporary Park and Ride scheme with buses taking visitors between the two car parks.

The section will close from 8am to 7pm on both days of the Bakewell Show. Warning signs will be put up. The rest of the Monsal Trail, beyond Hassop Station through the tunnels to Millers Dale and Blackwell Mill, will remain open.
