Those who came on my walk on December 2nd may recall that soon after the start we visited the public toilets in Bradwell only to find them closed.

I have been informed that the toilets are the responsibility of Derbyshire Dales District Council, who decided a few years ago, as a cost saving measure, to close selected toilets from November to March.

Having looked at their website, it may be useful to know that other toilets closed in this period include those at Birchover, Bonsall, Middleton by Youlgrave, Monyash and Over Haddon.

It seems that closures may be delayed until late November which explains why they were open on November 23rd when I pre walked the route.

I hope those who came enjoyed the rest of the walk!
