New Timetable For Service 218

This is bad news I'm afraid. At the end of July, service number 214 from Sheffield to Matlock via Chatsworth House is being withdrawn and only partially replaced by an extended 218 service which will now also serve Chatsworth House and Matlock.


This means that there will be a reduction of nearly fifty percent in the number of buses that go to Fox House, and there will now be very few buses travelling between Fox House and Baslow: this covers a lot of good walking country.

I also don't think that having the same bus go to both Chatsworth and Bakewell is a good idea; it might get very crowded.
