The service , the number 257, will be operated by Hulleys of Baslow, and will operate on Sundays.

The timetable changes state of the route: "Sheffield - Derwent - Bakewell/Castleton: From September 3 there will be timetable changes on all days of the week. There will also be additional evening journeys on Mondays to Saturdays.

"On Sundays, buses do not serve Bamford but instead extend over Snake Pass to Glossop, Hayfield, Chapel-en-le-Firth and Castleton."

A previous service across the snake pass was withdrawn in January 2022 because it did not attracted enough passengers to make it viable.

There was upset when the service was withdrawn.

Those who raised complaints at the time included the High Peak MP Robert Largan, who said at the time: “I am really disappointed that the X57 bus service will be withdrawn from January."
