13 bends or not 13 bends, that is the question

The 13 bends between Bakewell and Baslow.

The 13 bends between Bakewell and Baslow.

The 13 bends road between Bakewell and Baslow has come under question – over its name.

Readers have contacted the Derbyshire Times to query whether the route does actually feature 13 bends.

On our Facebook page, Dave Wheeton said: “There are nine from the first 13 bends sign to the second 13 bends sign.

“I’m a driving instructor and make a point of counting them with my pupils on the way to Buxton.

“It helps with observations and it eases boredom.”

Samantha Harrison said: “There are less than 13.”

David Norman said: “There’s 11.”

Amy Hodgkiss said: “There’s never 13 – it’s more or less.”

A spokesman for Derbyshire County Council was unable to confirm how many bends there are on the road.

The spokesman added: “13 bends is its historical name.

“We have no plans to count the bends.”
