Washgate Lane, in Hartington Upper Quarter, has a listed pack horse bridge and some lovely tranquil countryside around it but cars and bikes were eroding the lane and disturbing the peace here. In March 2011 Derbyshire County Council implemented a ban on vehicles over one metre wide. However motorbikes continue to damage the lane and create conflict with other users. The Peak District National Park Authority is currently asking statutory consultees for their views on making some form of traffic regulation order to restrict use of the route by recreational mechanically propelled vehicles. The Peak District National Park Authority has consulted on making some form of traffic regulation order to restrict use of the route by recreational mechanically propelled vehicles and the outcome is awaited.
