-ROAD and TRAFFIC -......The B 6012 Road - From Rowsley to Chatsworth will be closed from 7am Sunday 16 September,  to around midnight Tuesday 18 September, because Severn Trent Water are repairing a collapsed pipe. There will be a diversion in place -  around 10 miles through Bakewell.....
AND .........Derbyshire County Council is to close the A619 Thirteen bends road, which runs between Bakewell/Ashford in the Water and Baslow/Chatsworth. The road will be closed from the Pilsley junction, down to road from Chatsworth, from Monday the 24th of September until Sunday the 21st of October, to carry out essential work to protect the carriageway from undercutting by the Rymas Brook, which runs alongside this road.  The river has begun to migrate towards the road and threaten its integrity, so number of new retaining structures will be built to safeguard this road.  Because of the nature of the work it will not be possible to open the road at night - due to the depth of the excavations to be undertaken - however a diversion route will be in place. (Thank you Nigel Smee for this information)...
AND   ...An amazing drone video, of the works being carried out right now on the A54 Road .........road!!  CLICK HERE   ....Roadworks started on 30th July on the A54 Congleton Road - this is to replace barriers on the south side of the road near Wildboarclough.  The road will be closed
for some 16 weeks, until around November 4th, from the junction with the A537 Cat & Fiddle Road, to Bosley Crossroads.

-UK Outlook for Sunday 23 Sep 2018 to Tuesday 2 Oct 2018:
A fine, but cool start to the weekend is likely in most parts of the UK, with the best of the sunshine on Saturday expected in eastern areas. However, through Saturday wet weather is expected to arrive across the west, perhaps pushing across the UK on Sunday, potentially also bringing strong winds. Atlantic weather systems are then likely to continue to arrive from the west through the rest of the period bringing generally wetter conditions in the northwest, and drier conditions persisting for longest in the southeast. Strong winds are likely at times, particularly in the northwest with a low risk of gales. In between spells of rain there will be some pleasant sunshine and these more settled spells may become more dominant with time.
UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Oct 2018 to Wednesday 17 Oct 2018:
October will see periods of dry and fine weather at times, especially in the south and southeast where there may be some warm days. Occasional spells of more unsettled weather are likely, mainly in the northwest where there is a risk of gales and heavy rain at times. These conditions will perhaps occasionally extend across other areas too. Overall daytime temperatures are likely to be close to or slightly above average in the southeast with a cooler feel under cloud and rain in the northwest. However the lengthening nights means that there will be some cool overnight temperatures, with an accompanying risk of patchy morning fog in prone spots.-
