-ROAD and TRAFFIC -WARNING - To enable repairs to a very large and deep sewer, there will be temporary traffic lights on the A6 Buxton Road, in the middle of High Lane (just down from the speed camera!) between High Lane Conservative Club and the Bulls Head pub, from 7pm on Friday September 21 until Monday October 1.
AND .........Derbyshire County Council is to close the A619 Thirteen bends road, which runs between Bakewell/Ashford in the Water and Baslow/Chatsworth. The road will be closed from the Pilsley junction, down to road from Chatsworth, for four weeks, from Monday the 24th of September until Sunday the 21st of October, to carry out essential work to protect the carriageway from undercutting by the Rymas Brook, which runs alongside this road.  The river has begun to migrate towards the road and threaten its integrity, so number of new retaining structures will be built to safeguard this road.  Because of the nature of the work it will not be possible to open the road at night - due to the depth of the excavations to be undertaken - however a diversion route will be in place. (Thank you Nigel Smee for this information)...
AND   ...An amazing drone video, of the works being carried out right now on the A54 Road .........road!!  CLICK HERE   ....Roadworks started on 30th July on the A54 Congleton Road - this is to replace barriers on the south side of the road near Wildboarclough.  The road will be closed
for some 16 weeks, until around November 4th, from the junction with the A537 Cat & Fiddle Road, to Bosley Crossroads.

Thank you Andrew Kaye of Wickers World (https://www.wickersworld.co.uk/), flying from Clover Fields Caravan Park on the outskirts of Buxton (http://www.cloverfieldstouringpark.co.uk/) - photos taken on a recent flight looking over Beresford Dale and Beresford Hall Tower. Beresford Dale is a narrow tree lined dale, hemmed in by limestone cliffs. Above the dale stood Beresford Hall. Charles Cotton who lived at Beresford Hall, now demolished, wrote, with his great friend Izaak Walton, a remarkable book about 17th century rural England called ‘The Compleat Angler’. No other English language book, other than the Bible and Book of Common Prayer, has been reprinted more times. A tower, built close to the sight of the old hall and rebuilt in 1905, is all that remains, apart from The Fishing Temple built by Cotton in 1674 on a bend in the River Dove. There was originally a bowling green next to the Temple - now long gone! The Beresford Hall Tower is visible from the public path to the Dale, from Hartington.

-UK Outlook for Friday 28 Sep 2018 to Sunday 7 Oct 2018:
Through the remainder of September the weather should stay largely settled with long spells of sunshine and generally light winds. Northern and northwestern areas may be more changeable at times, with stronger winds and some outbreaks of rain, which may occasionally extend a little further south and east. Overnight, there will the risk of some mist and fog patches, especially in the south although it should remain mostly dry here. By day it will be warm for many, but some nights will be chilly with patchy frost possible. Into early October, many areas are likely to remain mostly settled, but it is likely to turn generally colder. Southern parts are likely to see the driest weather, but some wet and windy weather is possible in the north.
UK Outlook for Monday 8 Oct 2018 to Monday 22 Oct 2018:
Generally settled and drier conditions are likely to dominate across many parts of the UK during the beginning of this period, particularly across the south. This should bring a good deal of sunshine with any wet and windy weather, likely to be mostly confined to the north. Long nights will lead to a greater chance of fog and patchy frost, but the days will often be mild. Towards the middle of the month, there is considerable uncertainty in the forecast, with the chance that it may turn more unsettled across all parts, although this is most likely to be across the north. Temperatures are likely to be near normal to locally warm at times, but overall colder than normal. -
