Washgate Lane update

11th Mar 2011

Derbyshire County Council has proposed a ban on vehicles over one metre wide at Washgate Lane, in Hartington Upper Quarter – to stop  4 x 4 vehicles but not trail bikes. There’s a listed pack horse bridge and some lovely tranquil countryside at Washgate Lane, and both cars and bikes are causing erosion and disturbing the peace.  Along with other user groups and as part of our Take back the tracks campaign, we’re pushing for a full ban.  A consultation period is due, so watch this space.
