Mayor Cllr Hilary Young

I welcome you to the Bakewell Town Council website which contains information about the Council itself and the Civil Parish which we serve.

There are also links to the many community groups and organisations that can be found here in Bakewell.

It's a great privilege to be Mayor for 2021 - 2022 chairing our meetings and representing the town at a wide variety of events.

Bakewell has a glorious location along the banks of the river Wye and is the only town actually inside the Peak District National Park.

It has a vast array of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, a very busy weekly stall market, monthly farmers market, glorious walks and various festivals and events happening throughout the year. There's always something 'going on'.

This makes it not only a wonderfully vibrant place to live but also a great place to visit and base yourself for a Peak District stay.

We are though living in challenging times and it is a testament to Bakewell's spirit to see the community working together to support each other, particularly the most vulnerable and we look forward to when the current restrictions can safely be lifted again.

Please take care to ensure social distancing.

You can contact us via the form on our website.
