DERBYSHIRE BRIDGE/GOYT VALLEY - 10-11/10/03
Tonight we visit Derbyshire Bridge, you can find the bridge signposted from the A537 Macclesfield to Buxton Road. There is a car park, picnic site and a information board about the local area, (Goyt Valley) here. You cannot drive any further towards the Goyt Valley from here as a one way system is in operation.
