Over the Peaks by Bus

Next stop Manchester. Eddie (in rear view mirror, above) and I hopped on an excellent bus service, the TransPeak, which joins Nottingham to Manchester via Derby, Matlock, Buxton and Stockport. An all-day ticket for this entire route for one adult and one accompanied child - a mere £7.80. The bus journey was a delight - not least for the stirring scenery of the High Peaks and the lovely stone architecture of the Derbyshire Dales towns. Everyone on board was polite and friendly, the driver helpful and informative, the bus was comfortable and punctual.

Having taken the trip one way with Eddie, I returned the next day by the same bus from Manchester to Duffield with daughter Monika, Eddie having been seen off to Polish cub scout camp in North Wales. Below: Between Buxton and Matlock
