Hipper Valley 3

Extension from Somersall Park to Somersall Lane

This is the route extension from Somersall Park to Holymoorside. A very long running saga! In 2021 Derbyshire County Council finally abandoned plans for the route saying no agreement with the land owners could be finalised.

A group of Campaign members and residents from Holymoorside and Walton are meeting to attempt to get a reconsideration of that decision.

A lot of misinformation about the reasons for DCC abandoning the route has been bandied around, please read these answers DCC sent:


If eventually built the route will exit into Greendale in Holymoorside.

The first part leading from Somersall Park to Somersall Lane including a new bridge over the River Hipper has been completed.
