Title: Peak District by public transport 3
Creator: Will Larter

This pub crawl is made possible by using the Derbyshire Wayfarer ticket, valid on all buses and trains in the Peak District. (See the Derbyshire county council website at roads/public_ transport/tickets_passes/rover_tickets/derbyshire_wayfarer for details).We made an early start to this crawl as the sun was due to set at around 6pm and we wanted to be on the way home soon after. Roger and Rebecca at the Royal Oak just off Chesterfield market place kindly agreed to open at 9.45am for us, so we had time for a very early pint or a coffee to go with the bacon rolls before dashing off to catch the first bus from stand B12 on New Beetwell Street at 10.35. Bus no.66 took us through Baslow, Calver and Eyam to our next stop in Foolow, where Marilyn and Jonathan at the Bulls Head had also kindly opened early at 11.15 for our pub crawl. Bus no.65 an hour later at 12.15 took us to Millers Dale where the Anglers Rest is just around the corner from the bus stop. Another hour later, the next 66 was a little late, so we only had time for a bag of chips in Buxton before catching the 442 at 14.05 to Earl Sterndale for the Quiet Woman. The return bus at 15.31 took us back to Buxton with just time for a swift half in the Kings Head before the next 65 at 16.00 took us to Tideswell. Here we had time for a half in both the Horse and Jockey and the George before catching the 173 at 17.43 (this bus seems to make a habit of leaving early - we left the George at 17.40 and only just caught it). We arrived in Castleton at 18.00 with time for three pubs (Bulls Head, George and Peaks) before the 174 bus at 19.20. If you try this crawl, please note there are no further buses out of Castleton for two hours. (The 19.20 connects with the 19.34 train from Hope to Sheffield.)
