Dunford Bridge – From April 2021 until early 2023 the number of spaces available for parking at Dunford Bridge car park will be significantly reduced temporarily.  The reduction in space is necessary to allow major construction work to take place on National Grid’s Visual Impact Provision project in the Peak District.  Visitors and Trans Pennine Trail users are advised to use the alternative parking at nearby Windle Edge and Winscar Reservoir.  Please follow the signs and park in marked bays only. This is to ensure emergency service vehicles, local buses and construction vehicles have safe access.  All members of the public are kindly asked to only park in the designated marked bays and not to park on grass verges in the village if the car park is full but to use an alternative car park.

It will also be necessary to close the picnic area at Dunford Bridge to the public from June 2021 to the start of 2023. Trail users and members of the public wanting to access the TPT will still be able to do so from the Dunford Bridge car park throughout the duration of the project. From the autumn, they will be able to use the new diverted route which will open up new views north of the river in the Upper Don Valley.

Further details are available on the project’s website peakdistricteast.nationalgrid.co.uk which also includes drone footage of the project’s progress. If you have any other questions, please get in touch with the VIP project team directly by calling 0330 134 0051 or sending an email to visualimpact@nationalgrid.com
