Snake Pass Closed

A landslip following storms closes A57 Snake Pass

Snake Pass

In the interests of everyone’s safety, following damage caused by torrential rain as Storm Eunice and then Storm Franklin battered Derbyshire; the A57 Snake Pass has had to be closed.

Inspectors found movement in 3 locations along a mile-long section of the road and to protect road users a decision was made to close the road between Glossop and Ladybower Reservoir for at least a month. Visitor facilities at Fairholmes are unaffected and can be accessed via Sheffield.

In the meantime, local access will be maintained for residents. Drivers are asked to follow the diversion route through Hathersage, Hope, Doveholes, Whaley Bridge, New Mills, Hayfield and Glossop, and visa versa.
