Bamford Village lies within the Peak District National Park, 11 miles west of Sheffield and 25 miles east of Manchester. It is surrounded by high moorland; to the north are the Gritstone edges of Derwent and Bamford, and to the west lies the peak of Win Hill. The river Derwent flows through the village. Bamford has an interesting history.

Station Road Clearance

Bamford with Thornhill Parish Council
Volunteers Needed
Can you lend a hand to Clear Station Road footpath of vegetation
Saturday, 14th January 2016
Meet at Bamford Recreation Ground at 10.00am
We can supply the hi-viz jackets but if you have a pair of strong gloves and a shovel/spade
please bring them along
Please come and help if only for a short time
Please contact any councillor or Cllr Sue Beckett

 A big THANK YOU to all who turned up to help on Saturday.  Although the weather wasn't too kind to start off with, it turned into a reasonable morning to start the clearance.
I think the group have made very significant progress on the verge creep.  But unfortunately we weren't able to finish due to our lack of numbers.  So we will be proposing another date either next month or in March in the hope that we can finish the road before the vegetation starts to grow.  I do hope that more of you will be able to lend a hand.  Look for more details on the notice boards throughout the village and in the Bamford News.
I do hope you have all noticed the difference we have made.
