-----Please send me any traffic reports, which may help your fellow travellers - CLICK HERE mh@22mh.com
ROAD CLOSURE:The A5004 Long Hill Road will be closed completely from Buxton to Whaley Bridge from 28th September 2020 to 9th October 2020 to allow work to take place in the area where the temporary traffic lights have been - where the road has subsided.
ROAD CLOSURE:
From Monday 28 September, Highways England will carry out four nights of overnight closures to complete resurfacing work on the A628 Woodhead Pass. The overnight surfacing closures will be Monday to Thursday, between 8pm and 6am. (Thank you Eric Hilton for the update)
ROAD CLOSURE: The A54 Congleton Road is closed due to a land slip - Below is the sign on the south end where the lane from Sutton meets the A54. THANK YOU to Ivor Kelly for the photo and the information - and for taking the time to help other travellers - he says "It is confusing to say the least. The section closed (working from the Buxton end) is from just after the turn down to Wildboarclough to a point north of Blaze Farm. The similar sign on the north end of the closure where the A54 meets to Cat & Fiddle road is similar, saying Blaze Farm etc are open. However it fails to point out that you can’t reach these from the Buxton end without either dodging down the very narrow and long lanes around Wildboarclough (not recommended) or going through Macclesfield.  An alternative route for cars from Buxton would be to take the Leek road, go through Flash and come out at the Rose and Crown. This only adds around 5 minutes to the journey."

-----UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
---------
Tuesday 29 Sep - Thursday 8 Oct
Initially dry for many places on Tuesday before cloud and rain arrive later. Into the middle of next week, it is set to return to unsettled conditions with generally windy weather coupled with showers and occasional longer spells of rain at times. The heaviest rain is most likely in the west and northwest, which may also see gales, with a low likelihood of them turning severe, at times. In the east and southeast, there may still be brief interludes of drier and sunnier weather. Temperatures will generally be rather cool, potentially cooler in more persistent rainfall, and overnight frost may be seen in prone parts of the north during any brief interludes of calmer weather.
Friday 9 Oct - Friday 23 Oct
Further into October, conditions are likely to remain unsettled for most. The most unsettled conditions being in southern areas. Generally windy with a chance of gales, however the risk of gales reduces later in the period. Feeling cool throughout with a risk of overnight frost. Lighter winds means that morning fog patches may also become more prevalent towards mid-month.---------
