Derby Lane, part of the historic old road between Derby and Manchester, traverses the elevated limestone plateau south east of Monyash. Although part of the route is sealed in the middle section it becomes a true grassy lane crossing a protected field with lead rakes and a barrow adjacent to it. Here trail bikes have damaged the vulnerable wetter ground with ruts over a wide area. The National Park Authority is planning to consult on vehicle regulation on the route, in anticipation of the route’s status being defined as a BOAT.
