Bus cuts lengthen journeys

The loss of the number 67 bus service means residents in Sparrowpit have to travel to Buxton and change buses if they want to get to Tideswell, councillors have heard.

Chapel Parish Council wrote to Derbyshire County Council raising concerns but were told the service had been withdrawn as it was too costly when compared to the number of people using it.

They were told the village would still be served by the two hourly 190 service from Whaley Bridge to Buxton.
