The Bus Behind the Bushes?
A contributor to the world wide web writes:-
Service 200 was introduced around 10 years ago with Derbyshire funding, it was initially operated by Bowers before passing to Smiths of Marple in May 2010. Its primary aim has always been to carry school children from the numerous settlements in Edale to Hope Valley College and vica-versa. Probably as consequence of its train service, Edale has never enjoyed much in the way of bus services.
For those knowledgeable in these matters, it ran via the hamlet of Ringinglow ...
And for the trivia enthusiasts:
As chum David said in his email, "Surely droves of walkers and sightseers would pack the bus to the rafters if only they knew about it; and I could have ridden to Hope free of charge instead of paying a rail fare." Well, you have to have sympathy with poor downtrodden pensioners.
A nostalgia P.S. From 1929 to 1966 (approx) buses ran through from Sheffield, Castleton and on via the A625 Mam Tor road to Manchester, latterly in the Summer only. Service 72 was joint with North Western Road Car, which later handed its share (and some vehicles) to Trent. Here a former NWRCC bus, now badged for Trent, sets of from Sheffield to Castleton in the early 70s.
