Mayor Cllr Paul Morgans

I welcome you to our Bakewell Town Council website which contains information about the Council itself and the 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 2020 - 2021 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.

If you are currently thinking of visiting Bakewell to exercise please respect our community and put off your visit until Derbyshire is fully open for business and we will be able to welcome you properly with open arms.

You should be aware that:

· Public toilets remain closed and, like the rest of the country, pubs, restaurants and cafes are also closed.

· Please take care to ensure social distancing.

· Parking regulations are being enforced.

Derbyshire is a beautiful county and we understand people's desire to visit, but a visit later in the year will help protect our local communities and give you the full Derbyshire experience. We look forward to welcoming you then.
