Please could visitors follow the advice from the Peak District National Park, and the Government, and not "swamp" residential areas. It's great that everyone wants to visit but how about leave it until things have settled down. In the meantime, if you want to visit then park in the car parks; not like this: Single yellow lines = restricted parking. No parking 8am - 8pm in this case! Fancy getting a fire engine or tractor and trailer through that gap?
....to follow government advice and restrictions if you're visiting Edale this weekend! See here for details. The following advice from the the BMC is worth taking note of:
