Last month Derbyshire County Council (DCC) announced the notorious road was to close for at least four weeks following a landscape which left it in a perilous state.

Councillor Nigel Gourlay, who represents Chapel and the Hope Valley at DCC, commented: “Obviously the residents around the landslips are suffering a great amount of disruption.

“Most are following guidance not to cross the landslips and are taking long detours.”
