How to get there

Bamford is located on the A6013, which links the A57 and the A625, passing Ladybower Reservoir.

CAR: use S33 0AR for satnav
It is usually fairly easy to park in the village.
For the Quaker Community, satnav S33 0DA will take you to the end of Water Lane near its junction with Station Road. Continue straight ahead across the bridge and along Water Lane for about 500m, passing the main building of the Quaker Community on your right, to a small car park just beyond. However, be aware that the road is narrow and poorly made up, and you may prefer to approach on foot. Footpaths lead to the location from several directions, as can be seen on the map.

BUS: Mondays to Fridays: at least 1 service every 2 hours from Sheffield and Manchester; 4 or 5 services per day from Castleton, 2 from Bakewell. Saturdays: at least 1 service every 2 hours from Sheffield, Manchester and Castleton; 2 services per day from Bakewell. Sundays: at least 1 service per hour from Castleton; at least 1 service every 2 hours from Sheffield and Manchester; 1 service per day from Chesterfield. Also at the bus turnround near the rail station and the A625 junction (about 1km): Every Day: at least 1 service per hour from Sheffield and Castleton.
