Dunford Bridge car park update

PROJECT UPDATE - Parking spaces at Dunford Bridge reduced from April 2021

From April 2021 until early 2023 the number of spaces available for parking at Dunford Bridge car park will be significantly reduced as follows:

  • 19 car spaces
  • 2 designated spaces for those with disabilities
  • 1 horse box space

Visitors and Trans Pennine Trail users are advised to use the alternative parking at nearby Windle Edge and Winscar Reservoir – please see the map below.

The reduction in space is necessary to allow major construction work to take place on National Grid’s Visual Impact Provision project in the Peak District.

New signage is being installed and markings painted on the ground in the car park to clearly define individual bays and yellow hatched ‘no parking’ areas.

This is to ensure emergency service vehicles and local buses have unrestricted access to the car park, as well as for construction traffic to safely enter to the adjacent main site compound.

All members of the public are kindly asked to only park in the designated marked bays and to avoid parking on grass verges in the village if the car park is full.

During working hours, a member of the construction team will be available in the Dunford Bridge car park to help direct members of the public.

National Grid and its construction partner, Morgan Sindall, would like to apologise for any inconvenience and are very grateful to the local community and users of the Trans Pennine Trail for their patience while this work is landscape enhancement work is carried out.

The classic Dark Peak landscape around Dunford Bridge will be transformed by the removal of the pylons and once this work has been completed the car park itself will be enhanced and restored to full capacity.  Please take a look at the approved plans here.
