The road sweeps high into the Peak District National Park and is full of twisty bends and amazing views in what is a stunning area. It can be full of cars, 4×4’s, caravans, police cars, unmarked police cars and bikes.

Running over the heart of the Peak District. This road has been made famous by motorcycle driving enthusiasts because of the many and challenging bends. This is also classed as one of the most dangerous roads in the UK

In August 2015 David Fisher pointed out that the route is almost entirely covered by 50mph average speed cameras, but even at 50 mph the contouring route is challenging with the hairpin bends.
