Derbyshire Bus and Beer Running Day

Following the success of last year’s first event, we’re delighted to be working with Peak Rail once again to bring you The 2nd Derbyshire Bus & Beer Running Day.

Join us in 2021 for a chance to travel around Derbyshire and its Real Ale pubs on a selection of heritage buses from the early-60’s to the mid-90’s. Four free bus routes departing from Rowsley South Station approximately every 15 minutes will link Bakewell , Matlock and the surrounding areas giving you the chance to visit 30 real ale pubs en-route and sample a huge selection of real ales from local and national breweries throughout the day.

The routes are:-

154 – Bakewell – Peak Rail – Matlock

183 – Peak Rail – Bakewell – Ashford-in-the-Water – Monsal Head – Little Longstone – Great Longstone – Ashford-in-the-Water – Bakewell – Peak Rail.

184 – Peak Rail – Bakewell – Peak Ales Visitor Centre – Baslow – Calver – Hassop – Bakewell – Peak Rail.

240 – Peak Rail – Matlock – Matlock Bath – Cromford Crossroads – Lea – Crich – Cromford Crossroads – Matlock Bath – Matlock – Peak Rail

Regular updates will be posted in the run-up to the day on the event’s Facebook page, which can be found here:
