Severn Trent Water is set to install about three kilometres of new water pipes in the area.

The first phase of work will start on October 6 and the second phase of work will start on November 3, lasting until the middle of February next year.

Dave Kiernan, of Severn Trent Water, said: “We want to make sure our customers continue to receive a reliable supply.

“Unfortunately, the water pipes in Edale are now a bit old and have started to leak, which could lead to interruptions in the supply.”

The company has apologised to villagers for any disruption caused by the work.

A meeting on the plans is taking place at Edale Village Hall between 4pm and 7pm today.
