We have just received the following from Derbyshire County Council:

21st January collection update
Because of the overnight snow, today’s scheduled waste and recycling collections are on hold. We’ll be inspecting the roads later to check if it’s safe to collect. In the meantime please leave out bins and bags.

Please note it’s not just the condition of the roads on today’s scheduled rounds that are a concern, but also roads to and from our depot at Longcliffe.

Many thanks

The County Council have announced that QEGS will be closed today. We will try to keep everyone updated:

Queen Elizabeths Grammar School, Ashbourne
21-01-2015 06:13 AM GMT

The school is closed to students and staff today, due to the snow. This decision has been taken, at 5.50am, based on the weather in Ashbourne and surrounding areas, and after consultation with our school bus suppliers.

Snowy Roads

The snow has started, but the weather forecasters are uncertain about how much there will be. So, as the night progresses and in to the morning, do keep other readers updated if there are any problems on the roads:


Wednesday, 7am: Lynne G. reports

Just heard from a friend that the A515 is closed between us and Ashbourne because of a jack knifed lorry. The news was on Ashbourne Radio but I’ve also found it here in case anyone’s looking for updates:

The County Council website reports conditions are worse in the north of the County with so far the only other reported road closures north of Buxton.

Wednesday 8.15am: Cheryl W says:

I’ve just got to work and the road block is at the Bentley Brook Inn heading towards Buxton. The road from Parwich to Ashbourne is passable with care at the Parwich end but clear in Ashbourne.

Wednesday 10am: If you are traveling north, don’t forget about the Buxton Weather Watch website as they post people’s updates about road conditions pretty regularly.
