Leaving the Festival on Saturday morning is our road run around the finest roads the Peak District and rural Derbyshire have to offer. Organised again by the MG Car Club’s Shaun Nelson, the 2020 TYRE Tour takes in Bakewell, Buxton, Calver, Castleton and Carsington Water – and the popular Tissington Ford. Here’s a sneak preview of the route…
TYRE Tour 2020 begins with a journey north, passing Carsington Water before breaking through into the Peak District National Park. The route takes us through the famous market town of Bakewell – home of the Bakewell pudding and tart.
We continue to climb north before meeting the river Derwent at the small mill village of Calver. Following the Derwent, we reach Hathersage, before heading west into Hope Valley and the High Peak district.
Also known as Dark Peak, its remote and desolate moorlands are infamous for their numerous air crash sites, with much of the wreckage they hold remaining unrecovered.
