441/442 Disruption - Shrovetide Football

On Tuesday 5th March & Wednesday 6th March 2019

The Ashbourne Shrovetide Football game will take place on these days between 14:00hrs and 22:00hrs.

By the very nature of this unpredictable game, roads at any point in the town can be closed off for an indefinite period during the match.

Whilst we endeavour to operate to/from Ashbourne Bus Station this may not be possible as we are unable to plan for any diversion during the game and therefore some services may have to terminate before reaching the Bus Station & may also have to restart their return journeys from a point away from the Bus Station.

The game will affect the following services;

* 441 service from Buxton at 13:15.

* 442 service from Buxton at 14:25, 15:26, 17:35.

* 442 service from Ashbourne at 14:15, 16:00 & 17:05.

The only journey that is planned not to operate from Ashbourne Bus Station is the 14:15 departure, this will depart from Union Street near the Market Place.

Please note: Ashbourne Primary School & Queen Elizabeth School will be closed on both days.
